Trophies of Grace (part 4)

November 24, 2019 Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Ephesians - The Church - A Mystery Revealed

Topic: The Grace of God, Salvation, Faith Passage: Ephesians 2:8–2:10

Sermon Outline

The apostle Paul explains two reasons to be confident in the Gospel’s effectiveness to transfer us from the realm of darkness. We can be confident because:

  1. Our Faith has a Supernatural Origin!
  2. Our Works are Supernaturally Produced!

"I will not believe that thou hast tasted of the honey of the Gospel if thou can eat it all to thyself." ~ Charles Spurgeon

"Paul's claim [was] that the message he preached was the authentic Gospel of Christ. [There] are two things on which Paul pre-eminently insisted - that salvation was provided by God's grace and that faith was the means by which men appropriated it." ~ F.F. Bruce
