I can’t go to the gym, because I haven’t paid the membership fee and don’t have the membership card. This card doesn’t just give you access to the building, it’s so much more than that – you have access to everything inside, all areas of the building are open to you.

Read Ephesians 2:19-22 (http://bit.ly/2zJol8v)

Just like a membership card gets us into the gym – Jesus got us into heaven. No membership card/fee needed. I love what v.19 says, “Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to heaven, but you are members of God’s very own family”

Is there something you have seen or heard someone do (maybe you are that someone) and you thought to yourself, “oh my word, that person should never get away with that! I hope punishment rains down on them.”? Truth is we all deserve punishment to rain down on us. We were all born bad, sin made us bad.

BUT let’s read what Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:1-10 (http://bit.ly/2zIf7JB)

Instead of punishment and death raining down – undeserved mercy, kindness, love, grace (favour), salvation rained down. We went from bad to good. And not because of anything we could ever do, but because of EVERYTHING Jesus did.

Search out Colossians 1:15-17 (http://bit.ly/2l4uWju).

What does this portion of Scripture say about Jesus?

Verse 15 tells us that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. You may be thinking, “what does this even mean?” Jesus is the image of God – He shows us just what God is like. He shows us God’s character.

When you think about God, which character traits come to mind?

These verses are incredible as they outline how Jesus is high over all things.He is King over kings and kingdoms! Awesome! When we read about Jesus, we get to know God better!

At 4, I convinced my dad I was ready to cycle the big-boy bike. I sat on the cross-bar and peddled while he held the saddle and ran next to me. Faster and faster we went. This was a piece of cake, until I realised that he was no longer holding the bike and was way, way behind me. Only problem was the T-Junction ahead and I had not learnt about brakes.

See Matthew 14:22-33 (http://bit.ly/2pPqrv5)

What is important is not that Peter sank, but that even with a little faith, he was the only Disciple to walk on water. The others only watched.
