Ephesians 1 Part 1 – Greetings, Grace, and Redemption In Christ!
It was great to get back from the summer holidays and get right back into the pulpit and begin a new series. This time starting in Ephesians. This first part covers only vv.1-6, but it is amazing to see the emphasis that Paul makes on God’s Will and Purposes! All of God’s Will and Purposes are for the Praise of the Glory of His Grace, and so it should come as no surprise to find out that Paul loves to talk about the grace of God in Salvation, placing it outside of anything that man has anything to do with, even in choosing the believers, “marking them out beforehand” (the meaning of Predestination), so that the work of Salvation is ALL of God’s Grace and NOTHING ELSE!
