      TO WATCH ALL THE MESSAGES IN THE "WAKE UP" SERIES, VISIT BROOKLAKE.ORG/BLOG God is a grand creator and we respond to the beauty He creates in a variety of different ways. As we journey through this section of Ephesians, we see that we were created for, we were made for, more than ordinary. “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:1-10 ESV) “It wasn’t so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin. You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living, tell you how to live. You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience. We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing, when we felt like doing it, all of us in the same boat. It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah. Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.” (Ephesians 2:1-10 MSG) The only way to salvation is trust in Jesus’ work on the cross. Nothing we can add to it will make it more or make it less. His grace is enough. The natural outflow of thankfulness is to respond by aligning our lives with the work he is doing. Salvation is free, but effort is not opposed to the gift of salvation. YOU WERE MADE FOR DOING. “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” (Psalm 139:14 NLT) We weren’t made to sit around, pontificate, or debate. We were made for DOING church. We respond to the grace of God in such a way that it moves us to DO. Don’t let yourself believe that you are not a part of this. The secret is to join God in the work, to step into the stream of what He’s already doing in this time and space. YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR EVERYTHING GOD WANTS YOU TO DO. “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.” (2 Peter 1:3 NLT) God’s economy is different than ours. Following Jesus is often marked by stepping into a space where we don’t KNOW if we’ll have enough (time, money, strength, etc.), but we TRUST God to use what we do have right now. It’s the stories of overcoming that are the most inspiring. GOD’S NOT DONE. “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6 NLT) “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28 NLT) We live in a moment of already, but not yet. We have everything we need in Jesus, but there is more work to do. Salvation is personal, but we have a responsibility to steward our response to it. God uses everything in our lives to bring about his purposes. Become doers. Become love. Use your arms and legs, your hands and feet. This week, ask Jesus to show you what he’s already doing and what he is inviting you into.

            TO WATCH ALL THE MESSAGES IN THE "WAKE UP" SERIES, VISIT BROOKLAKE.ORG/BLOG It’s probably no surprise to you to hear that we live in a transactional, performance oriented culture. In this culture, we search out acceptance through our actions. And it was the same for the people in Ephesus. They were living through a time of high “spiritual” value, with a culture bound by the idea of fate and fear. Their life was rooted in performance to please the (little g) gods, specifically the goddess Artemis. As new believers, many people in Ephesus were struggling with the dichotomy of this lingering anxiety and fear of their old culture based on the gods, while living in a new way, worshiping the one true God. Many struggled with the temptation to “cover their bases” and appease the old god where needed. In comes Paul to remind them of the great power of being chosen and adopted by God. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will… 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” (Ephesians 1:3-5, 19-23 ESV) While we may not set up little silver statues of Artemis today, there are prevailing ideologies in our hearts we are struggling against. Idols are alive and well, they just go by different names. 1. THE ONE WITH THE MOST TOYS WINS. This is the worldview of materialism, and it can be summed up with one word: more. Materialism says that the only thing that really matters in life is acquiring things. 2. I’VE GOT TO THINK OF ME FIRST. This is thinking about and serving yourself first, taking care of number one. 3. DO WHAT FEELS GOOD. This is hedonism, the idea that the most important thing in life is how I feel. 4. WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU. This worldview says it doesn’t matter if it’s right or wrong, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. 5. GOD DOESN’T EXIST. This worldview is naturalism or atheism. Naturalists believe that everything in life is a result of random chance. We’re all accidents of nature. There is no grand creator or grand design. God either doesn’t exist or he doesn’t matter. 6. YOU ARE YOUR OWN GOD. This worldview, otherwise known as humanism, is very popular in the Western world. It says we are the mastermind of our own fate, the determiner of our destiny. As followers of Christ, we are called to stand apart from these ideologies and stand with God’s way. As we change our views and accept the great adoption from God, we can fully experience the true love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Our culture may discard the “less than perfect”, but God choses us and adopts us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. In spite of any failings, Christ still loves us. It is an adoption that cannot be broken. God will never disown us. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will.” (Ephesians 1:3-5 ESV)
