8 CHURCH PICNIC May 25, 2014 at Wilson Park After the third service

9 QUOTE “... today’s church is not a community but rather a collection of individuals.” p. 45

10 EPH 4:16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

11 EPH 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

12 OUR UNITY IS THE BASIS FOR OUR COMMUNITY

13 INTRODUCTION TO EPHESIANS BECAUSE OF MY BLESSINGS IN CHRIST I WILL BE PART OF A LOVING COMMUNITY WITH OTHER BELIEVERS

14 BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE I WILL PRAISE THE FATHER WHO CHOSE ME, THE SON WHO REDEEMED ME AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO SEALED ME SO THAT I MAY GLORIFY GOD

15 OPEN OUR EYES LORD EPH 1:15-23

16 UNIQUE GIFTS

17 EPH 1:17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

18 QUOTE “What comes to our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy, p. 1

19 EPH 1:15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,

20 EPH 1:16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.

21 EPH 1:17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

22 QUOTE 1.Those who know God have great energy for God. 2.Those who know God have great thoughts of God. 3.Those who know God have great boldness for God. 4.Those who know God have great contentment in God. J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p

23 KNOW GOD WHO ENCOURAGES EPH 1:15- 18a

24 EPH 1:18a I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you,...

25 EPH 1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love

26 EPH 2:12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.

27 QUOTE What matters supremely, therefore, is not, in the last analysis, the fact that I know God, but the larger fact which underlies it—the fact that He knows me. I am graven on the palms of His hands. I am never out of His mind. All my knowledge of Him depends on His sustained initiative in knowing me.... J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p. 37

28 QUOTE... I know Him, because He first knew me, and continues to know me. He knows me as a friend, one who loves me; and there is no moment when His eye is off me, or His attention distracted from me, and no moment, therefore, when His care falters. J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p. 37

29 KNOW GOD WHO ENRICHES EPH 1:18b

30 EPH 1:18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,

31 AUCTION

32 READING OF WILL

33

34 KNOW GOD WHO ENABLES EPH 1:19- 23

35 EPH 1:19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,

36 HERCULES

37 EPH 1:20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,

38 EPH 1:21 Eph 1:21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

39 EPH 1:22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,

40 EPH 1:23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

41 OPEN OUR EYES  KNOW GOD WHO ENCOURAGE  KNOW GOD WHO ENRICHES  KNOW GOD WHO ENABLES

42 OPEN OUR EYES OPEN MY EYES SO THAT I MAY KNOW GOD WHO GIVES ME HOPE, RICHES, AND POWER

43 QUOTE There is tremendous relief in knowing that His love to me is utterly realistic, based at every point on prior knowledge of the worst about me, so that no discovery now can disillusion him about me, in the way I am so often disillusioned about myself, and quench His determination to bless me.... J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p. 37

44 QUOTE There is, certainly, great cause for humility in the thought that He sees all the twisted things about me that my fellow-men do not see (and am I glad!), and that He sees more corruption in me than that which I see in myself (which, in all conscience, is enough)... J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p. 37

45 QUOTE There is, however, equally great incentive to worship and love God in the thought that, for some unfathomable reason, He wants me as His friend, and desires to be my friend, and has given His Son to die for me in order to realize this purpose.... J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p. 37

46 QUOTE We cannot work these thought out here, but merely to mention that is enough to show how much it means to know, not merely that we know God, but that He knows us. J.I. Packer, Knowing God, p. 37
