Sermon Recap September 18

Here’s the sermon from yesterday. Audio is here.

 

Ephesians 1:1–2 NASB95
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
To the saints who are at Ephesus and who are faithful in Christ Jesus:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is "Paul."
The Ephesians know him--time has been spent, relationships built.
He is "Paul."
Not "Sergious Paulus Extremely Awesomeus."
God used him for who he was. Not even for who he should have been.
God will use you as you are.
When you are  obedient .
Paul is responsible to Christ Jesus. Not to the Ephesians. Nor to anyone else.
Except Jesus Christ.
God does not ask if you would like to...
by the  will  of God
He's the one in charge!!
What does this look like?
A relationship with Jesus, for starters
Salvation by  grace
Salvation  from sin and for God
A surrender to Jesus, for the next step
All lives
Called out  servants as well
A  commitment  to the cause of Christ!
Every day
Every person!
