Grace upon Grace, May 6 2018
With Senior Pastor Stephen Baxter
Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is somewhat of a masterpiece. Penned in prison nearly 2000 years ago, nevertheless, the letter is full of relevance to our times. Themes such as racial and ethnic reconciliation, unity in the body of Christ, and holiness setting the church apart from the surrounding culture, are significant and pertinent to us today.
But so often our perspective is too low, too human, too temporal, too material, too earthly, too self-centred. In this letter Paul challenges us to see our earthly reality in the light of the heavenly, eternal and spiritual reality.
Each week we will explore one chapter of the letter through the lens of the theme “Glory Upon Glory.” The text for the week will be chosen by the preacher for the day. Each will bring their own unique insights.
The goal is that we be gripped by the glory of what God has done for us in Christ, what this means for us in our daily living and what it will mean for us in the future.
