His by Grace - Ephesians

The Bad News: DEAD!

Passage: Ephesians 2:1-3 We have just finished celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and were reminded that the essence of the Reformation was the recovery of the biblical Gospel of Jesus Christ. The word gospel means good news, and it is certainly that. But before we can get to the good news, it […]

Praying for the Church

Passage: Ephesians 1:15-19a Having completed a mind-blowing passage praising the love of God and his work of redemption, Paul now moves into a beautiful prayer for his readers.

Queen of the Epistles

Passage: Ephesians 1:1-2 Today, we begin an exciting new sermon series in the book of Ephesians which we have entitled His by Grace. Paul’s letter to the Ephesian church is one of the most magnificent documents ever written and perhaps only the book of Romans can match it for the influential position it holds in […]
