    Unseen by the rest of history, the mystery of the Kingdom is given to us.

    I love mysteries. Many have looked at the universe as a mystery and sought to solve the mystery. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Senior, was a doctor. As such he was very interested in the use of ether. In order to know how his patients felt under its influence, he once had a dose administered to more

  • 2. No Room In The Church

    There is supposed to be no room in the Church for what Paul covers with the Ephesians in this passage.

    No room at church Ephesians 4:17-32 Ill. I asked a Methodist preacher one time if he was having mice problems like we were in the Baptist Church. He said, “No, our attendance is so good now, we don’t have room for mice so they moved out.” Eph 4:17 Now this I say and testify more

  • 3. God's Artwork

    We are saved for good works as God's artwork, and the difference He makes in our lives must be seen.

    Sculptures have always amazed me. You have heard the story of the man who carved art out of logs using a chain saw. His specialty was carving the shape of an angry bear. He loved for people asked him how he did it. He would answer, “I just cut away everything that doesn’t look like an more

  • 4. Near To God

    Contributed on Mar 1, 2015

    Christ has made us near, and that work is the most power factor in our lives today.

    (This sermon was preached with a pair of sunglasses sitting on the top of my head, reasons to be seen later in the sermon.) Every Church longs to see revival. I am not talking about a series of revival services. Those can bring about spiritual awakening, but seldom do. I’m talking about more

  • 5. Diferences Within Unity

    Contributed on Mar 9, 2015

    The differences based upon the Spirit's gift to the Church should create greater unity, not disunity.

    Unity and Differences Ephesians 4:7-16 Zero’s do make a difference. A quick postcard was sent out to church members of a church was considering a new pastor. A newsletter had gone out and no one had noticed the error. The postcard said, “Pastor Bill Murphy actually has the 100 more

  • 6. The Walls Are Gone

    Contributed on Mar 9, 2015

    Jesus tore down walls to unify us and welcome us to the presence of God.

    The Walls are Gone Ephesians 2:13-22 Ill. From our earliest moments, we tend to focus on differences. There is a story about two apples in a tree. One of them said, “Look at those humans. They find reasons to hate and fight each other over everything.They are stealing, killing, going to more

  • 7. Choose You This Day

    The legacy of Choice has not been a great one for mankind. However, Jesus changes our opportunity to choose life by His wonderful gift.

    Choose This Day… Ephesians 5:6-14 “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth…” God built on the earth a garden, named Eden. In the garden He placed the first man and woman. Also in the garden, He place a tree… The tree was the tree of Knowledge of more

  • 8. Live It!!!

    Contributed on Mar 9, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    Having established our position in Christ and the glorious gifts of HIs presence, we are challenged to live in a manner worthy of our gift.

    Live It! Ephesians 4:1-5 One of the themes in Ephesians is that Christ in a life in this wicked world must make a difference. You cannot have the King of Glory in your life and live as a secret agent for the Kingdom. You cannot be forgiven and receive the title deed of God in your heart by the more

  • 9. Power-Packed Praise

    based on 4 ratings

    Paul breaks into spontaneous praise as he relates the glorious gifts of God to us.

    Power-packed Praise Ephesians 3:20-21 Jim Dunn was serving as the pastor of the First Baptist Church, and his wife, Gladys, was very friendly and welcoming to people. One particular Sunday when the sermon seemed to go on forever, many in the congregation fell asleep. After the service, to more

  • 10. The Power Of Love

    Contributed on Mar 9, 2015

    Love must be supernatural. In other words, it must be demonstrated in the worse possible moments to the most unworthy subjects, when we feel the worse. Or it is not of God.

    The Power of Love Ephesians 3:14-19 Corrie Ten Boom in the book, Reflections of god’s Glory (page 69), wrote, “In Africa a man came to a meeting with bandaged hands. I asked him how he had been injured. He said, “My neighbor’s straw roof was on fire; I helped him to put more

  • 11. Six Steps To Wisdom

    Contributed on Nov 7, 2014

    "Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise". Paul then gives us instruction on being wise. We start with the first six.

    Ephesians 5:15-21 Six Steps to Wisdom. A pastor was meeting with his staff and deacons. Suddenly an angel appears and says, “Pastor, because of your faithful sacrifice, you have been granted one of these three choices: Unlimited wisdom, or unlimited money, or unmatchable good looks. Which more

  • 12. Polar Opposites

    Contributed on Mar 10, 2015

    Paul teaches the Ephesians that what we learn in Christ is polar opposite of what we naturally do in the flesh.

    I was studying wisdom this week, reviewing some of the resources I had recently received. One defined wisdom as, “The ability to look at things that look very similar, but the nature of them is quite different.” This is the focus of our message today. Eph 5:1 Therefore be imitators more

  • 13. Redeemed By Grace

    Contributed on Feb 27, 2015

    Grace is received at salvation and every day of the believer's life. It is the way to victory.

    Redeemed by Grace Ephesians 1:7-10 As usual, I am very excited about this sermon from Ephesians 1. I suppose most pastors feel that way from week to week. Ill. I am reminded of the three boys at school who were bragging about their daddies. One said, “My dad scribbles a few words on a more

  • 14. Because He Wanted To

    Contributed on Feb 27, 2015

    God has lavished upon His children wonderful gifts of grace, simply because He wanted to.

    Because He Wanted To Ephesians 1:3-12 Based on a fictional story about the former pro golfer Arnold Palmer, Palmer once played a series of exhibition matches in Saudi Arabia. The king was so impressed that he proposed to give Palmer a gift. Palmer demurred; "It really isn't necessary, Your more

  • 15. Once Dead, Now Alive

    Contributed on Mar 1, 2015

    The work of redemption is simple, yet complex, shows the ugliness involved to present the beauty that results.

    Once Dead, Now Alive! Ephesians 2:1-7 When God first created mankind, he created within him an active spirit. This spirit (life) was able to commune with a Holy, righteous God. God said, “If you eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you will surely die.” He was speaking more
