Risen in Christ
A Sermon on Ephesians 2:4-7
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (ESV)
Salvation comparable to the resurrection of Christ; no longer under Law; but grace; born a child of Adam; crucified with Christ; a new humanity; the desires of the new man; the will of the Christian is exercised in a new direction.
