Ephesians 4:1 | Brian Agovino

a family of grace, believing and becoming the gospel.

ephesians 4:1 [esv]

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called.

Walk in a manner worthy of our calling and resist the pessimist, embrace the idealist, and walk as a realist.  

01. Resist the Pessimist

A. We select data to support our pessimism. 

B. We make dangerous covenants with our hearts. 

02. Embrace the Idealist

"He who loves his dream of a community more that the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter… if we only keep complaining to God that everything is so paltry and petty, so far from what we expected, then we hinder God from letting our fellowship grow according to the measure and riches which are there for us all in Jesus Christ."


- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

03. Walk as a Realist

Walk in a manner worthy of our calling and resist the pessimist, embrace the idealist, and walk as a realist.
