Scripture text: Ephesians 2: 8-10 Preacher: Rev David Sutherland Date: 11 January 2015
Our study of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians continues. Four weeks ago we reached Chapter 2, where in verses 1-3 Paul points to the necessity of salvation; last week we considered verses 4-7, where Paul describes the nature of salvation. In verses 8-10, the subject of today’s sermon, Paul, in revealing the characteristics of salvation, identifies the cause of salvation — by grace, the instrument of salvation — through faith, the source of salvation — of God, and the sphere of salvation — in Christ Jesus. The sermon reflects on those four characteristics and encourages the listener to do likewise.
