Sermons on Ephesians (Page 2)

The Temple of the Living God

The Lord is building a dwelling place for Himself.  In Jesus Christ He has laid the foundation stone – all the fullness of God in bodily form.  By the Spirit He dwells in each believer and now through the exercise of the gifts of the Spirit He sets about the work of build a temple of living stones.  Will we join the building by eagerly desiring the Spirit’s gifts and using them to build up the body?

Made Alive in Christ

Today we dig into grace – what does it mean to be saved by grace? Just what has God done for us in Christ and why? How should we respond? We discover that our life in the Spirit begins with the gift of new life itself.

Sealed by The Spirit

Today we being our new series looking at the Life of the Spirit from Paul’s letter to the Christians in Ephesus.  Chris opens the series by exploring what it means to be sealed by the Spirit. Our life in the Spirit is first of all a life where we are chosen and marked out to be God’s people, His possession, His letter and under his protection.  We are adopted into His family, given an inheritance of redemption and forgiveness.  We have the deposit now and the promise of full inheritance when Jesus is revealed and He returns to redeem those in His possession.

Holy Spirit in Church

As church is the gathering of people saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit must be at the heart of every healthy church. Chris reviews the evidences of the Spirit’s presence in the New Testament church and outlines the marks of a Spirit-filled church today. We then seek to keep in step with the Spirit by seeking His gifts of healing.
