This sermon from Ephesians 2 examines a sinners condition before Christ. Mankind is born spiritually dead. There are three enemies of God: the world, the devil, and the flesh. The result of this condition is that men and women are sons of disobedience and children of wrath. Fortunately, there is a phrase at the beginning of v. 4 that changes everything: "But God..." When someone trusts Christ, their position changes, they are now "in Christ" and have been "made alive!" The sermon closes by looking at the role of works in the life of a follower of Christ. The implications of this text are also discussed. You can download the bulletin as well as the notes for this week. God bless!
This is the first prayer in Ephesians. Paul's prayer life was confident, ongoing, planned, and he tended to focus on spiritual needs over material needs. He thanked God for the faith and love of the Ephesian believers. Paul also requested that God would help followers of Christ know HIM better. The prayer ends with praise. Our prayer life should imitate Paul's.
This is the first sermon covering Ephesians. The next three months at Faith Bible will be a slow walk through this letter. This sermon introduces the letter by looking at Revelation 2 and the first 14 verses of Ephesians 1. In these verses, Paul outlines six spiritual blessings of being a follower of Christ: Chosen, adoption, redeemed, a revealed mystery, inheritance, and being sealed. Each one of these blessings becomes a major theme throughout the rest of the letter.
This stand-alone sermon from Pastor Chuck covers Psalm 46. This Psalm is messianic, prophetic, and practical. God is our protection, God gives us power, God is our helper who is always present, and God gives us peace in times of trouble!
