The Church at Ephesus
Ephesus 1:1-12
Sunday morning
Bro. Greg Isom

It is only through the redeeming blood of Jesus that we are forgiven of our sins. Everything in the OT pointed to the coming of the Messiah and the work He would do. It was not until after the resurrection and the gift of the Holy Spirit that mankind was given the understanding of God's plan for the salvation of "whosoever will." That was considered a great mystery in times past, but that has now been made known unto us. 

We are chosen for an inheritance by His will that the lives we live can be "the praise of His glory." Is there a greater encouragement than to be told that the God of all creation chose you? Let's let our light shine in this dark world!

Father, thank you for the saving and redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, and for choosing us to be your children. May our lives bring praise to Your glory.
