Mission 2 - Mission and Gospel (Ephesians 1:9-11)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, August 16, 2015
Part of the Mission series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

What is our mission as Christians? Is it to warn people of their moral failings and their consequences? Is it sharing spiritual experiences, or getting people to accept what we believe is the truth about doctrine or prophecy? What was the message and mission the Father sent the Son to share with us? Perhaps that mission is bigger than we thought?

Ephesians 1:9-11

9Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: (KJV)

  2. Paul has been undermined by other teachers of the gospel who contend he is not a very impressive speaker when he is with the Church in Corinth. This sermon addresses what our defense is when an attack comes against us that is rooted in the flesh.
