The Gospel in One Sentence Part 1 (Ephesians 2:1-3)

(For accuracy of this transcript, please refer to the audio file)

If you have your bibles, please turn with me to the book of Ephesians. Going to be continuing our sermon series to this really rich book. Going to be in Ephesians 2:1-3, if you don’t have a Bible, there are bibles all around the room on the shelves there or you can look on with someone else or you can look up on the screen. Ephesians 2:1-3, let me read from God’s word, And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience – among whom we all once lived and the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath like the rest of mankind.”, this is God’s holy word. I don’t know about you, but I always feel really tense whenever someone approaches me and they say that they have good news and they have bad news and we should be tense because we don’t really know what they’re going to say. They could give us the good news first and then the bad news or they could give us the bad news first and then the good news. Which one should we want to hear first? Usually the bad news first. Hopefully, if they give us the bad news first, then the good news is going to be much better than bad news. The good news is going to overshadowed the bad news. Well, we’re going to be in Ephesians 2:1-10, over the next three Sundays and basically, we’re going to be asking one question. Now, the One question is this. What is the good news of Christianity, otherwise known as what is the gospel of Jesus Christ? Now, specifically, we’re going to be summarizing the good news of Christianity. We’re going to be summarizing the gospel message in one sentence and that sentence is on the screen.
