Join us today as we continue our “So That” series. Pastor Neli compares a rocket to an elevator and the requirements for each to lift us upwards. Let’s compare this to the Book of Ephesians where Jesus and his love came down through the cross so that we can be elevated to be seated in a heavenly place. Sin is deadweight. But God’s mercy, grace and love for us are counterweights that give us life.
“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)
