How God Sees the Structure of His Church”

Ephesians 4:11-16

There are 4 Biblical structures of the Lord’s Church. Take time to review and discuss:

1. God Structured the Church as a Fellowship.

Read Acts 2:42

What does it mean to fellowship?

How can our fellowship help us to downplay differences and promote unity?

2. God Structured the Church as a Body.

Read 1 Corinthians 12:17 and Ephesians 4:15&16

What does it mean to be “the Body of Christ”?

How can our spiritual gifts aid our function as the Body of Christ? (Read 1 Peter 4:10)

3. God Structured the Church as a Family.

Read Galatians 6:10

What does it mean / how should it look that we are the “Family of God”?

Read 1 Timothy 5:1-2, how are we commanded to treat one another?

4. God Structured the Church as a Flock.

Read Psalm 95:6-7 & John 10:11

Why do we refer to our Elders as our “Shepherds” (see 1 Peter 5:1-2)

Spend some time in prayer thanking God for our church family and the structure that God has giving us in His Word for His Church.
