Family-Friendly Worship

Welcome

 

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Saints Andrew & Matthias online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

The Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany


The Collect

O GOD, who knowest us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright; Grant to us such strength and protection, as may support us in all dangers, and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Text

Ephesians 2

2 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Epiphany IV

  Oscar Wilde once said of a man he knew that, “He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends.”

 

  Of course the feeling of being not liked by others really isn't funny.

 

  Saint Paul in his letter to the Ephesians was writing to them at a time in which some of the members of that congregation had lost the feeling of Christian kinship with others in that group. He was attempting to make them remember that they were all important members of a greater body, the Church as a whole.

 

Ephesians 2:18 “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God: And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone. In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord; In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

 

   The new gentile members of the group were feeling a sense of inferiority to the Jewish born Christians. This caused some of them to lose interest in the work of the church.

 

  In this epistle Paul is reminding them of something we today in our churches must keep in mind as well. We all, as members of the Church, are made one through Jesus Christ.

 

   By our sinful natures mankind was separated from God. Between God and man there was a debt so great that mankind alone could never close the gap.

 

  Jesus took man's debt of sin on himself, and by his death on the cross for us, took away the debt of sin that had been the barrier between mankind and God.

 

   Through Jesus Christ each Christian has become a child of God and a part of the body of Christ.

 

  This means of course we are a part of one another too. God has given us his Holy Spirit by which our lives are changed from ones of selfishness to living lives for others.

 

   Each of us, as Christians, has our job to do within the “household of God”.

 

  Like in any family, each member plays a part and each is important to the whole.

 

  We are all precious in God's sight because we have all been bought with the precious blood of Jesus.

 

  We are each a small part of that “temple of God” of which St.Paul speaks.

 

   While we now can't see the finished building we should rejoice that we are “built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets” and that Jesus Christ is indeed, as Saint Paul says, our “corner stone”.
