Evan Duncan: The One Maker (Ephesians 4:1-6)
Evan Duncan, teaching and communications pastor of First Baptist Church in Temple, Texas, preaches about how the Holy Spirit enables Christians to walk together. One of the biggest challenges for Christians is how to do life together, especially as different cultures and statuses come together. The world notices when Christians are divided, and Scripture says the world also will notice when Christians are united.
Duncan notes, “Christian unity is not uniformity.” He explains the character traits of Christian unity, originating in the Holy Spirit and listed by Paul in his letter to the Ephesians.
This sermon was delivered on June 23, 2019, during the modern worship service at 11:00 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Temple. It is the last of a series titled “The Holy Spirit.”
