In Christ: God's Wisdom In The Church

June 4, 2018 | By: Chase Krug | Scripture: Ephesians 3:1-13

God has given us His word and we don’t have to look for extra special, secret messages because He has given us everything we need in the Bible and it is complete. He has also fulfilled His promises that He made to Israel in the church and allows us to participate in them. Because of all of this, we can look at our current circumstances and sufferings in light of God’s eternal glory.


In Christ: New Humanity

May 27, 2018 | By: Chase Krug | Scripture: Ephesians 2:11-22

The Gospel invites us to participate in the Covenant that was promised to Israel. Christ created a community of believing worshippers through faith, not ethnicity. This New Covenant Community is united and as a result we must understand that our lives are not centered around race or culture, they are centered around Christ.


In Christ: Made Alive

May 14, 2018 | By: Chase Krug | Scripture: Ephesians 2:1-10

The good news of the Gospel is not that Jesus came to make bad people better. The good news of the Gospel is that Jesus has come to make dead people alive. We are now spiritually alive because of God's grace, not because of anything we have done. Our salvation is not by works, but works are important because it is a privilege to work alongside our Heavenly Father.


In Christ: Eyes To See The King

May 6, 2018 | By: Chase Krug | Scripture: Ephesians 1:15-23

In Ephesians 1:15-23, Paul is praying that the Holy Spirit will open the eyes of the believer. Because it’s only when our eyes our opened that we can grasp the glory of God and live into the privileges of all that comes with the eternity of our relationship with Christ. Those privileges are a life of hope, value, and power.


In Christ: Chosen and Sealed

April 30, 2018 | By: Chase Krug | Scripture: Ephesians 1:1-14

In the beginning of Ephesians, Paul is worshipping God for His sovereignty and for our salvation. He reminds us that before there was anything, God knew you and loved you. When we believe that our salvation from beginning to end is a work of God's grace we'll be driven to at least 4 things.
