Sure the robbery is the big part of this story but Taco Bell could use this as a promo. "Where do Indycar drivers go after a day of qualifying? Taco Bell!" Or "Taco Bell the choice Indycar drivers."

====================================
This is Us - The Church
The Bride of Christ
http://bible.com/events/221353
====================================

Ephesians 5:22-32 NIV
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.

ECCLESIA
---------------------------
The Greek word meaning about gathering. The church is not about the "where" it is about the people who gather.
---------------------------

PURPOSE OF CHURCH

Ministry Unto God
---------------------------
God wants the Church to praise His holiness and worship Him from our heart.
---------------------------

I Get To Choose What I Magnify: GOD or MY PROBLEMS
---------------------------
If we choose to magnify our problems, we put our problems before God and they become our idols.
---------------------------

PURPOSE OF CHURCH

Ministry To Believers
---------------------------
The church needs to speak truth and grace to move each believer closer to God.
---------------------------

PURPOSE OF CHURCH

Ministry To The World
---------------------------
When we leave church gatherings we are to show the world who God is.
---------------------------

We LIVE NEAR GOD So That We Can Be Sent Out To Those FAR FROM GOD
---------------------------
Whatever the church ignores, Satan will use to cause the church to stumble.
---------------------------

BENEFITS OF BEING THE BRIDE

Intimacy
---------------------------
Our current cultural had lost the understanding of what intimacy is supposed to mean. It means more than sex.
---------------------------

Ephesians 5:25 NLT
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her
http://bible.com/116/eph.5.25.NLT

INTIMACY - INTO ME SEE

See The REAL ME, Not The PROJECTED ME
---------------------------
Intimacy is about getting to know who a person really is, not what they are pretending to be.
---------------------------

BENEFITS OF BEING THE BRIDE

Protection

Ephesians 5:25-27 NIV
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
http://bible.com/111/eph.5.25-27.NIV

I'm To Live Like A MAN WORTH SUBMITTING TO And She Is To Live Like A WOMAN WORTH DYING FOR
---------------------------
Good (Jesus) died for the church (bride) yet soon does the church live like a bride worth doing for. He chose to die for the church anyway so the church should living worth it.
---------------------------

BENEFITS OF BEING THE BRIDE

Authority Of The Name
---------------------------
Good gave the church power to invoke His name to battle Satan.
---------------------------

Ephesians 5:31 NIV
“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
http://bible.com/111/eph.5.31.NIV

For Further Study:

1. The Bible mentions over 30 “one another” commands in the New Testament that are nearly impossible to fulfill without being in relationship with other people. Here are a few of them. After reading each verse below, identify the “one another” command in each one.

John 13:34-35

Romans 12:10

Romans 12:16

Romans 14:13

Romans 15:7

Romans 15:14

Colossians 3:16

1 Corinthians 12:25

Galatians 5:13

Ephesians 4:32

Ephesians 5:21

Colossians 3:9

1 Thessalonians 5:15

Hebrews 3:13

Hebrews 10:24

Hebrews 10:25

James 4:11

James 5:16


Looking back on these verses as a whole, what general observations can you make about them?

Which one or two of them do you sense the need to work on in your life right now?

2. We heard this weekend that the church is the body of Christ, a living organism made up of a variety of people each with a role to play. In Ephesians 4:1-16, the Apostle Paul captures the balance between the unity we share as the body of Christ and the diversity we have as members with differing gifts.

What does Paul say is the goal of the unity in diversity that he writes about in this passage?

What do you see as your part in helping Hope Church become mature?

+Buzz Aldrin​ brings up a good point about setting up cycles to the moon. If we can't get the short trip to the moon right first, there is no sense aiming for Mars.

Many would say this man has every right to be angry. This man said he doesn't want to die being angry. Jesus said love anyways.
In America, very few of us can say we have faced this type of persecution yet we still live angry. Why? With more rights and affluence than most of the world, why do so many of us go through each day being angry?
Maybe it is time to start asking ourselves "What way is better, to live hating or to live loving?"
I hope we all choose loving and learn to put that choice into action.
