Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples


God’s Glorious Vision for the Church

Ephesians 2:11-22 We must know who we were and what we have become to live out God’s vision for the church Three contrasts that reveal God’s glorious vision for the church (1) No longer alienation but nearness  (11-13) (2) No longer division and hostility but unity and peace (14-18) (3) No longer “not a people” but God’s people (19-22)

Saved by Grace

We deserved God’s wrath but we were made trophies of grace so we might live a life God has called us to live. This passage answers three necessary questions to properly understand salvation: 1. What were we apart from Christ? Spiritually Dead (1-3) 2. What are we with Christ Spiritually Alive (4-7) 3. What was it all for? God’s Glory (8-10)

Confident Prayer

Psalm 28 Because the character of God drives all He does, our prayers will grow in confidence and effectiveness the more we come to understand Him. The character of God: 1) Drives prayer (1-2) 2) Ensures the judgment of unbelief (3-5) 3) Overflows praise (6-7) 4) Ensures the salvation of the faithful (8-9)
