I had the opportunity to preach at my church, Grace Fellowship, last Sunday. I spoke on Ephesians 3:1-13.
For this reason I, Paul,a prisoner for Christ Jesuson behalf of you Gentiles— assuming that you have heard ofthe stewardship ofGod’s grace that was given to me for you,how the mystery was made known to meby revelation,as I have written briefly.When you read this, you can perceive my insight intothe mystery of Christ, which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. This mystery isthat the Gentiles arefellow heirs,members of the same body, andpartakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
Of this gospel I was madea minister according to the gift ofGod’s grace, which was given meby the working of his power. To me,though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given,to preach to the Gentiles theunsearchableriches of Christ, andto bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mysteryhidden for ages inGodwho created all things, so that through the church the manifoldwisdom of Godmight now be made known tothe rulers and authoritiesin the heavenly places. This wasaccording to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we haveboldness andaccess withconfidence through ourfaith in him. So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am sufferingfor you,which is your glory, (ESV).
Below is the video of my sermon. This is the first time I’ve been videoed preaching which is pretty remarkable since I’ve been in ministry for 20 years. I have to say I didn’t realize how much I moved around.
