The Gospel or “Good News” of Jesus is so powerful that it changes our past, present and future.
We are in a four week study of what it means to be “Chosen” by Christ. Our key scripture passage is Ephesians 1:3-8. This Sunday we will study how the Gospel changes our present life.
Ephesians 1:6 says "To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved...” Because of His grace he calls us His “Beloved.” The word beloved means “one that is held in great affection, one that is thoroughly loved, to belong.” When you break the word down it literally means to “Be Loved.”
Today, this day, you can know that God deeply loves you and you belong in His family. Wow, this changes the way we see ourselves and how we can view others today in the present. Because He loves us, we can love ourselves and love others. Receive His love and pass it on to others this week!
It is an honor to serve as your Pastor. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
