In Ephesians 1 Paul the Apostle recounts for us everything (almost) that God did to save us. It’s an overwhelming parade of blessings! We begin to see here that salvation is the work of God from beginning to end (we see later in the book why it has to be this way).
(NOTE: due to technical difficulties–we’re still learning the equipment!–the end of this message is cut off. We’ll do better next time.)
Since the Apostle Paul addressed this letter to the “saints” in Ephesus, this message explores the biblical teaching on saints. What is a saint according to the Bible? How can the New Testament refer to all believers as saints, when we sin so much? Is every Christian a saint? What does the Bible say about our new identity as followers of Christ–what change has God made in us and how does he continue to work in us?
