  • Truth For A New Year Series

    Contributed by Scott Maze on Jun 14, 2021

    There are two ways people think saints are made. Some believe sainthood is achieved while others see sainthood as received.

    Happy New Year to you! Thank God 2020 is behind us. If you were given just one word to describe the year 2020, what would you choose? A recent survey asked just this and found the #1 word chosen to describe this previous year was “awful, terrible, or horrible.” I wonder what word you would use. more

  • Paul's Authority

    Contributed by Chuck Gohn on Feb 2, 2021

    This sermon was the first one of a series on the book of Ephesians. It unpacks the first two verses. Specifically Paul's authority to write the letter, and the value of the specific recipients of the letter (i.e., who Paul would refer to as "Saints)."

    Good morning. We are beginning a new series on the book of Ephesians called The Church in Christ and the Church in Culture. In case you are not familiar with the book of Ephesians, it is actually a letter that the apostle Paul wrote to the church that he founded in the ancient city of Ephesus. more

    God-sized changes from Christ: 1. We are blessed with all spiritual blessings (vs. 1-3). 2. We are chosen as God’s children (vs. 3-5). 3. We have been given God’s grace (vs. 5-7).

    God-sized Changes from Christ Ephesians 1:1-7 Sermon by Rick Crandall Grayson Baptist Church - February 17, 2019 (Revised October 2, 2020) MESSAGE: *You know, people generally don't like change. Mark Twain once said, "The only person who likes change… is a wet baby." more

  • "no One Exactly Like Me" Series

    Contributed by David Henderson on Jul 20, 2020

    Now here’s a truth I want you to recognize today: There is no one exactly like you. Look all the world over. There is no one exactly like you.

    FINDING OUR IDENTITY “No One Exactly Like Me” Ephesians 1:1-14 I have always loved statistics. Some are useful. Others are worthless. I want to begin by sharing one that I think is amazing. Listen closely. Here it is: In a typical year about a million billion snowflakes fall each second more

  • Redeemed By The Blood Series

    Contributed by Hugh W. Davidson on Jun 13, 2020

    We are either saved by faith or we're not saved at all

    Ephesians 1:1-14 Two old guys from a seniors home were sitting outside enjoying the sunshine when one turned to the other and said, "Hey Slim, I'm 83 years old and I'm just full of aches and pains. You’re about my age. How do you feel?" And Slim said, "I feel just like a more

  • Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Jun 7, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    The first chapter of Ephesians is dedicated to telling the Christians there how pretty they are to God. Why would Paul spend all that ink and paper on this topic? And what can that mean to us?

  • The Way Of Grace & Peace Series

    Contributed by Matthew Kratz on Apr 17, 2020

    In his salutation, Paul presents the dual resources of Grace & Peace through 1) The dual source of his apostolic authority (Eph.1:1a), 2) A dual description of believers (Eph.1:1b), 3) A dual blessing for believers (Ephesians 1:2a), and 4) The dual source of those blessings (Eph. 1:2b).

    Ephesians 1:1-2 [1:1] Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus) [2]Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Paul And Ephesus

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Jul 29, 2019

    We hear Paul's letter to the Ephesians like we might overhear someone talking on the phone. We get only half of the conversation. If we are going to understand Paul's teaching we need to learn as much as possible about the circumstances of his readers.

    Years ago there was a farmer from a very small village in Germany who was just itching to get out and see something of the world. His big chance came when his nephew got a job on a barge that would sail up the Rhine River to Rotterdam. Even if it only stayed there for one day to drop off one more

  • God Chose You

    Contributed by Stephen Aram on Jul 29, 2019

    Some of us might have trouble believing that the big, eternal God would ever even notice little old me. But Paul, right from the start of his letter to the Ephesians, emphasized that God had chosen them to be his.

    This is our third Sunday now focusing on the book of Ephesians. At last we're getting around to starting at the beginning. We have already peaked at parts of chapter 2 and chapter 3 because of special themes for Epiphany and Human Relations Sunday. But now we get back to a more orderly more

    based on 1 rating

    There are three astonishing things I was reminded of this week

    “The Mystery of His Will” June 23, 2019 Ephesians 1:1-14 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To God’s holy people in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus more

  • From Rags To Riches Series

    Contributed by Donald Mcculley on Jun 10, 2019

    Introduction: Everyone likes a “from rags to riches” story. If you are a child of God then this text is “your story”! Paul boldly declares our riches (richness) in Christ. Let’s go to the ATM (Almighty Treasure Mine) and find out what the balance is in our account.

  • You Are Blessed Series

    Contributed by Hiram Withers on Mar 4, 2019

    We often become complacent in our walk with Christ. Sometimes we need a reminder of the many blessing s that come to us when we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior.

    Charles Spurgeon made this observation on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. “The epistle to the Ephesians is a complete body of divinity. In the first chapter, you have the doctrines of the gospel, and the next, you have the experience of the Christian, and before the epistle finishes you have the more
