Ephesians (Part 8) – Sleepwalkers – Audio

In 1999 the movie the Matrix came out and many of us easily related to the feelings of the main character, Neo. Were we awake or really dreaming? Were we just drifting through life? Are we sleepwalking?

But what was Paul’s intention in writing the beginning of Ephesians 5 where we tells us to imitate Christ as beloved children and then goes on to list things that aren’t supposed to be happening in our lives. And then why Does Jesus tell us that in order to inherit the kingdom, we better look like children? Perhaps there’s more to this confusing verse than just a checklist…….
