Ephesians 2:1-7 Dead in our sins


Church Family,

Ephesians 2:1-7 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 4But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us5even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Did you know that Dead people can't do anything? We are utterly lost without Christ. That person who does so much "good", who gives of their time, ability, and possessions, but is without Christ, is doing it all for themselves. They can claim to be doing it for God, but they are Dead. Unable to do anything towards God. 

But God. Oh what a wondeful statement, But God, being who He is, has provided salvation because fo the great love with which He loved us. As you read God's word this morning, what He is telling you? Rejoice when God speaks. Treasure it and obey if called to do so.

Reminders:

1) Pray for the youth as the travel this Friday and return next Tuesday. Ask that God will save the lost and revived the saved.

2) Pray for Matt Hess and Scott Ridenour's trip here January 22nd-24th. Pray that God will build our relationship with them and that God would send other pastor's and churches to help with reaching the people of Toronto.

3) Monday January 22nd at 6pm We are hosting the Waccamaw Association Meeting

4) Wednesday January 24th we are having service at 6pm. Matt and Scott will be here to eat, fellowship and share with us. There will be a time for questions that you may have for them. 

5) Senior Adult Outing at the Church next Tuesday for lunch.

Love, Serve, Go
