Grace is not something that we can earn. We were once dead in our sins, but God made us alive in Christ Jesus. We will never outgrow our need for the truth of the Gospel.
In this message, Dr. Richard Barcellos explores the significance of the preaching ministry of the glorified Christ. Each time a preacher of the gospel stands to proclaim Scripture, it is Christ Himself preaching His truth for the salvation of souls and the edification of the body of Christ. Therefore, His church must give primacy to the proclamation of the Word of God.
Church unity has a trinitarian foundation, is built upon a doctrinal foundation of justification by grace through faith alone, and is motivated by love.
What does it look like to dwell in unity? What is the foundation of our unity?
As Paul wraps up his opening comments to the church at Ephesus, he offers a prayer for them that is centered around the theme of God’s power displayed in the resurrection and exaltation of Christ. As we ‘know’ God and grow in our understanding of His incredible power, we will deepen in the hope of our calling, realize the riches of the glory of our inheritance, and embrace the surpassing greatness of His power.
The Mercy that God Displayed to His Once Orphaned Children Impacts the Mercy that His Adopted Children Display to Orphans
