The Mystery of God
A Sermon on Ephesians 1:1
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus: (ESV)
When you’re at the point of giving up and giving in, would it make a difference if you knew that the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead was working for you? This is the mystery Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones addresses as he begins a new sermon series on the book of Ephesians. While the world wrestles with "war at our doorstep", the mystery of salvation leads Christians to worship and give thanks even in the darkest hour. As The Doctor explains, the Apostle Paul is pleading with believers to seek a new, fresh and deeper understanding of God’s grace and predestined purpose for us. Since the riches of God’s attributes are displayed in our salvation, live always ready and eager to confess the gospel of Jesus Christ! Knowing that or sovereign God reigns supreme over all, and that the death of Christ paid for our sin and He has risen from the grave, we move forward in confidence. Regardless of our circumstance, the greatest need of everyone is to know the truths of the gospel.
