We continue into Week 2 of our In Christ series. Pastor Neli follows on from the Book of Ephesians when he’s asking us the type of life we want to lead. Are we focused too much on the things that are temporary or are our minds and hearts fixed on what is eternal? The Gospel takes effect when you realise you’re dead. Dead in your trespasses and sins. Of all the 7+ billions people in the world, God chooses you to reveal His grace.
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.
– Ephesians 2:4-7 (ESV)
