Ephesians Series - Part VII - When a Plan Comes Together
7/31/2016Brother Kenny Matthews Ephesians 1:7-12
As if abounding grace, adoption into the family of the most high, and forgiveness of sin were not enough, God’s “mysterious plan” for those who trust in Christ comes with yet another great benefit. HEAVEN! God's grace is so full that it even allows a dirty sinner like us to enter into eternal rest in the presence of our God and savior. Today we examine this inheritance and we remember the responsibility of those who live “to the praise of His glory.”
Someone once said this phase: "It may cost you a little, it may cost you a lot, but it will cost you!" In many respects, that is true of most things in this life. However, we rarely hear about the cost to follow Jesus Christ.
In Luke chapter 14, Jesus' fame continues to spread throughout Jerusalem as crowds travel with Him. In verse 25, Jesus states a shocking reality of whatâ€™s required to follow Him.
In this message, Brother JP Dennis will help us to
explore the cost of discipleship and the hope that God gives us to endure in our Christian walk.
