The Ministry of Mysteries (Eph 3.8-13)

Most people enjoy a good mystery. That’s why mystery novels and movies and games are so popular with so many people. Apparently the apostle Paul enjoyed a good mystery, too – though for a very different reason. For Paul, it wasn’t about solving the mystery. It was about proclaiming the mystery! In this sermon, we…

The Great Purpose of the Church (Eph 3:1-7)

Some people are confused about what the church is for. From stained glass in the windows to Slurpees in the café – different people can have wildly different expectations. This is why it is so important to let the Bible rather than personal preferences set our expectations. In Ephesians 3, the apostle Paul uses his own relationship to the Gospel to outline for us God’s great purpose for His church.

God’s Solution to Human Division (Eph 2:19-22)

In this sermon, we focus on the “horizontal” implications of our salvation by unpacking five new identities Christians have because of Jesus Christ. Thanks to Jesus, we are reconciled not only to God but also to one another. Text = Ephesians 2:11-22 To view the print bulletin, please click on the blue “Save PDF” button.…

Saved! (Eph 2:1-10)

The word save means different things to different people. For example, a banker has a different concept of saving than a soccer goalie does. But when it comes to being saved in Jesus Christ, the Bible gives us a clear picture of what God means by the word. In this sermon from Ephesians 2:1-10, we…

Growing Prayers (Eph. 1:15-23)

Many faithful Christians struggle in their prayer lives, and one of the reasons we struggle is that we are not quite sure what to pray. We know all about the obvious prayers (the “give us this day our daily bread” variety) and the vague prayers (the “God bless so-and-so” requests). But after a while, we…

The Inheritance Blessings

It would be strange indeed to go to a sporting event and hear no cheering. Yet in a sense, that’s what happens when Christians receive “every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” in Jesus (Eph. 1:3) but then fail to give praise to God. In this sermon, we consider two more blessings we have in…

The Restoration Blessings (Eph. 1:7-10)

If you’ve ever tried to restore a car or a piece of furniture to it’s original condition, you know that restoration projects are a lot of work — and a lot of expense, too! But those sorts of projects are nothing compared to the grand restoration project God has undertaken in Jesus Christ. In this…

#Blessed (Eph 1:3-6)

If you search #Blessed on Instagram or Twitter you come up with all sorts of idea of what it means to be “blessed.” But what does the Bible say? More specifically, what does Ephesians say it means to be “blessed”? We explore this question in the next three sermons, beginning with the Blessing of Election.…

Four Foundations of Christian Identity

In this sermon, we are starting a new series in the New Testament book of Ephesians. We begin this series by considering our identity in Christ. How does God want us to think of ourselves now that we belong to Jesus? That is the question we’re asking the first two verses of Paul’s letter to…
