That Same Power? (part 2)

Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Ephesians - The Church - A Mystery Revealed Category: The Church, 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)

Certainly, a basic and important illustration of Christ's present use of authority is His current ability to rescue sinners from the most despicable powers of all, Satan and sin - Harold Hoehner

The Head and the body are Christ wholly and entirely. The Head is the only begotten Son of God, the body is His Church; the bridegroom and the bride, two in one flesh - Augustine
