That Same Power? (part 1)

Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Ephesians - The Church - A Mystery Revealed Category: The Church, The Glory of God, The Power of God Scripture: Ephesians 1:19–23

Sermon Outline

Paul prays that the Ephesian church would comprehend four astonishing truths about the immeasurable greatness of God’s power. He wants everyone to understand that this same power:

  1. Raised our Lord from the Dead! (vv. 19b - 20a)
  2. Revered our Lord at God’s Right Hand! (vv. 20b- 21)
  3. Relegated All Things to Him! (v. 22a)
  4. Rendered our Lord Head over the Church! (v. 22b-23)    

But the power of God cannot be so determined and measured, for it is uncircumscribed and immeasurable, beyond and above all that is or may be. On the other hand, it must be essentially present at all places, even in the tiniest tree leaf - Martin Luther

"The MORE you Trust in the Arm of the FLESH, the LESS you're going to see of the POWER of GOD." - Paul Washer

"With the goodness of God to desire our highest welfare, the wisdom of God to plan it, and the power of God to achieve it, what do we lack?  Surely we are the most favored of all creatures." - Aiden Wilson Tozer
