Nataly Mora: You Are the Church. Be the Church. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
Nataly Mora, associate pastor of Park Lake Drive Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, begins with a famous story about responsibility. She considers Paul’s instruction to the Ephesian church in three points. He told them to walk—live—in gratitude, to be contributors rather than consumers, and to share responsibility for the work of the church. Mora expands on each point, providing exposition and sharing examples from her life and the life of the church. She concludes with a charge to her hearers.
