Sermons about Mystery
In today’s message, we look at Paul’s ministry. To Paul, Jesus mattered most. How did this affect the way Paul lived? How did it impact the way he faced hardship? Viewed relationships? The way Jesus influenced Paul ought to be the same way Jesus influences us today.
1. The Mystery Revealed in the Gospel ● Be Humble before God: and understand His unfolding-Plan (v25) ● Know that the Deliverer will Come: and all Israel will be saved (vs26-27) 2. God’s Mercy Received in the Gospel ● the Enemies of God in the Gospel: are the Beloved of God in Election (vs28-29) ● God Delivers all Peoples over to the Prison of Disobedience: that He might have mercy on all (vs30-32) 3. God Glorified through the Gospel ● in the depth of His Riches: we cannot earn payment from God [Salvation is God’s gift] (vs33,35) ● in the depth of His Wisdom: we cannot offer counsel to God [Salvation is executed God’s way] (vs33,34) ● in the depth of His Knowledge: we cannot know the mind of God [Salvation is according to God’s plan] (vs33,34) ● in the Supremacy of His Being: God is the origin, sustainer, and goal of all things [Salvation is for His eternal glory] (v36) 4. Walk in the Footsteps of Paul ● Our devotions should be theological: and our theology should be devotional (adapted from John Stott) ● Embrace the life-transforming Gospel: with an eye on the universal, unfolding-plan of God for His glory
Pastor Phil Harris explores the secret of the ages mentioned by the Apostle Paul in the book of Ephesians.
Paul offers three insights to help alleviate discouragements.
Three themes from the language of the story: Today – Salvation begins Immediately. Remember me – We can have Security in the love and forgiveness of God. With me – Jesus is present with us even in our pain, Mystery.
Prayer is a mystery, yet the Father wants to hear from His children.
No one has real peace until they have Jesus.
The first step of redemption is knowing who we are in Christ. Therefore, we must know the Gospel.
