Ekklesia (The Church) is the Assembly of Called Out Ones - (1) Relationship to God: We are a living sacrifice. Everything we do is worship. We are to commit all of ourselves to the Lord (body, mind and will). Being a living sacrifice requires you to be humble. (2) Relationship to Ourselves: God has given us each a unique gift. Discern what God has given you and use it wisely. (3) Relationship to One Another: Love should mark our relationship with one another. Love with your heart and love in action. (4) Relationship to Our Enemies: Love your enemies. Live at peace with everyone. Don’t seek revenge in our hearts or in our actions.
