Last week’s sermon was given by Lincoln Sprague, church planter, of Waitsfield. His message was taken from Ephesians 1:3-14 in which Paul is writing to the Christians in Ephesus. He is informing them that as believers they have blessings in the heavenly realms, which come through Jesus.
Paul is talking about heavenly blessings, for the Christian is a heavenly man, and a stranger and pilgrim on the earth. These heavenly blessings are given not only that we may have what we need to live in a world alien to things of God and His will, but for the praise and glory of God who made us to display His glory, to be a light in a dark world, and to make known to the world His great love.
His heart’s desire is that none should perish but all should come to the knowledge that Jesus has already paid the penalty for each and every sin.
God of the universe is our Father, and He patiently waits for us to believe in His son Jesus, and accept this free gift of salvation. The choice is ours, because He loves us.
