God’s Dream For You
From our call, to our inheritance, to our power, God has changed our standing, identity and future beyond imagination. This “salvation” is so staggering that Paul is intent on helping believers fully grasp God’s dream for us. It is broken down into three parts.
The Hope of God’s Call. This is a look back to what God has called is to. In Christ, God called us out of darkness into light, out of slavery into freedom, out of our old sinful self into a new creation in Christ.
The Glories of God’s Inheritance. This is a look forward to what we will receive. We will be made complete (like Jesus) and live in a perfect environment.
The Greatness of God’s Power. This is a look at the power God currently has made available to us. The same power that rose Jesus from the dead is not just on display for us to see, but is currently at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)
God’s Dream Through You
This message is about the purpose God has given us. From the strength of our position in Christ, we are empowered to partner with God in carrying out his “good works” in the world. God has crafted us a certain way to have a specific role that is customized for each of us. Another amazing promise Jesus gave his followers is that we would do even greater things than Jesus.
