Tomorrow I will be preaching from Ephesians 3:14-21 on Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians to be “strengthened with power through [the] Spirit.” Devon Kauflin will be leading our time of singing.
We’re also going to be welcoming about 120 new members who have joined us since last April.

Yesterday Eric Simmons preached from Ephesians 3:1-13, stating that “The Church’s very existence proves that God’s plan for salvation worked.”
You can listen online or download the message here.
Pastor Brian Chesemore prepared these questions to help us apply the message individually in our times of devotion, or in conversations with family or friends.
1. In Ephesians 3:1-13, Paul describes the revelation of God’s plan. Why is it so amazing that Paul was God’s chosen messenger to reveal his plan? What is Paul’s means (3:8) to make known the mystery of Christ?
2. Eric preached that the Church (universal and local) is God’s instrument to prove the truthfulness and effectiveness of his plan of salvation. How can our care groups, families and other relationships in the local church protect and display the unity of the Church?
3. Paul viewed Gentile believers through the lens of the gospel (3:6). Where do you tend to make a big deal of the differences between you and others (political, social, cultural, age, etc)? How does the reality of Christ and his work on the Cross renew your perspective?
