Ephesians 4:11-16

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • What picture does Paul give for the church in this passage?  What parts of the body are identified?
  • How many times does the text speak of the body growing or being built up?  Why would God mention it so often?
  • What does growth in the church look like?  What is it contrasted with?

Other passages to consider: Matt 16:13-18; John 15:1-17; Acts 20:28-32; 1 Cor 12:12-13:7; Eph 2:11-22; 3:20-4:16; Col 1:15-20; 1 Pet 4:7-11

Digging Deeper:

  • How does God intend the church to grow?
  • How does the text emphasize corporate growth rather than just individual?  What does this say about the importance of involvement in the life of the church?
  • What does it mean to grow up into Christ?
  • Does your current commitment to the church match God’s intention?  How can you be more connected to the body?
