Abundance of Grace through Jesus Christ

Romans 5:12-21

May 24, 2020 • Pastor Paul Edwards

How do we calculate the value of the abundance of grace which has been given to us through the Lord Jesus Christ? The value of a gift is measured by the costliness to the giver and the worthiness (or unworthiness) of the recipient.

Created After God

Ephesians 4:17-24 • June 28, 2020 • Pastor Paul Edwards

In Ephesians 4:24 the Apostle declares that the believer is different from the unbeliever because he has been "created after God in righteousness and true holiness." What does it means to be "created after God"? What caused you to be "created after God"? What is the evidence that you have been "created after God"? The answer is is Ephesians 4:20-21.

What is Different About You?

Ephesians 4:17-24 • June 28, 2020 • Pastor Paul Edwards

What distinguishes a Christian from a non-Christian, a believer from an unbeliever? In this study of Ephesians 4:17-24, the Apostle Paul contrasts the unbeliever's mind - the vanity of the mind - with the believer's mind - renewed in the spirit of the mind - and the behaviors which result from each. If unbelievers do not ask you what you have they don't have or what is different about you, could it be that there is nothing at all different about you because you are not really a Christian?

Pretentious Minds

Ephesians 4:17-19 • June 21, 2020 • Pastor Paul Edwards

What is to characterize the thinking and behavior of those who have been made new through reconciliation with God by faith in Jesus Christ? The Apostle first tells us that we are NOT to conduct ourselves like those who have never been regenerated, and goes on in Ephesians 4:17-19 to describe in detail the cause and consequence of the condition of the unregenerate mind.
