Passage: Ephesians 2:11-18

Memory Verse for the Week: Ephesians 2:13, 18 & 22 (ESV)

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. ... For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. ... In him you also are being built together in a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

Intro: How have you experienced a broken relationship?

What does it mean to be alienated?

What if our meeting place is a Person?

Therefore, what does it look like to live reconciled with God and my neighbor?


  1. Worship the LORD for His heart to be related to us as His people! Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit that He IS an eternal relationship, and that He designed us to live in His likeness – related and in love.

  2. How have you lived as if others are not necessary and being on your own is better? Confess your pride and ignorance to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and that He would repair you from your broken ways. 

  3. Give thanks to Jesus for His work to bring back together what we ripped apart in our sin. Thank Him for reconciling you to the Father, and to others; for taking out of you your guilt and putting His love in by His Spirit.

  4. Who do you know that is selfish and isolated? Pray for them, asking the Lord to help them to see their perilous condition, and that they would discover the miracle and beauty of Jesus’ love.

  5. Ask the Holy Spirit to bear in you His fruit of love. Pray that He would help you to live in light of what He has given you – membership in His own family – and that you would reflect that hope and grace to others.
