The Unwasted Life [Sunday Preview]
I am really excited about this Sunday at TJC. We will be studying Ephesians 2:10 and closing out Paul's stream of thought found in verses 1-10. We have studied the reality of our sin nature and spiritual state before Christ (1-3). We then looked at the gospel of grace and how God saved us by making us alive with Christ (4-5). Then we saw that God raised us up and seated us with Christ in the heavenly realm; He pulled us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His Son, and gave us access to His presence (6-7). This was all a work of grace, not of works, a gift of God, not our own doing, so that nobody could boast (8-9). That leads us to the concluding verse (10).
I truly believe this sermon is one of the most important sermons I will ever give.
That is a big statement. Why do I make it?
This text and the implications from it get down to the core of why we exist. As Christians, God has saved us. We are His workmanship, formed for good works. This is why we have been saved. God has formed us for a greater purpose than simply chasing the American dream. We were made for more, much more. This Sunday we are going to compare and detail the wasted life vs the unwasted life.
Join us this Sunday at TJC, invite some people with you, and come worship and study God's Word on this vital topic.
The sermon title for the sermon is: The Unwasted Life.
