STUDIES IN THE EPISTLE OF EPHESIANS
"SOME REAL MARKS OF TRUE SALVATION"
INTRO: Recently over this pulpit I delivered a message that addressed the issue of what real Christianity is all about. Many people around the world do not know the truth of real Christianity and consequently do not have a real relationship with Christ. REAL CHRISTIANITY IS TO TRUST JESUS CHRIST ALONE AS SAVIOR. When a person TRULY TRUSTS CHRIST, CERTAIN DEFINITE RESULTS WILL BE SEEN. Those results are seen in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that says: "IF ANY ONE BE IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATURE; OLD THING ARE PAST AWAY; BEHOLD ALL THINGS BECOME NEW." In other words, there is a REAL CHANGE that takes place in the life of the REAL CHRISTIAN.
Our text today presents TWO REAL MARKS OF TRUE SALVATION that we want to observe. There is NO QUESTION about it, these two marks are seen in the life of every true born again Christian. So, let's observe.

INTRO: SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE PATRIOTIC? That is a question that may seem to be rhetorical or even redundant to some, but yet it is a serious question because there are some Christians who really wonder if the Bible supports the concept of CHRISTIAN PATRIOTISM. Let me ask you another question as well. WHAT SHOULD THE ATTITUDE OF CHRISTIAN CITIZENS BE TOWARD THE NATION IN WHICH THEY LIVE? I believe that is a VERY PRACTICAL QUESTION TO ASK because any nation can have rulers who are evil and situations that are ungodly that will lead to wrong doing from time to time. Certainly a BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW OF GOVERNMENT WOULD NEVER ENDORSE A KIND OF "BLIND PATRIOTISM" IN WHICH A CHRISTIAN WOULD GO ALONG WITH EVERYTHING A RULER OR POLICY WOULD ESTABLISH (ABORTION, BIG GOVERNMENT, OR SAME-SEX MARRIAGE WOULD BE EXAMPLES). But what about GENUINE PATRIOTISM? IS IT BIBLICAL? Today we will examine that concept of CHRISTIAN PATRIOTISM from the pages of scripture.

STUDIES IN THE EPISTLE OF EPHESIANS -TWO
(THE POSITION AND PRACTICE OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST)
"THE CAUSE AND EFFECT OF OUR POSITION IN CHRIST"
TEXT: VERSES 12-14
INTRO: A study of the Epistle of Ephesians is profitable for EVERY BELIEVER TO CONSIDER. WHY? Because it is a book that clearly speaks of the POSITION AND PRACTICE OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST. Each book of the Bible has a theme as to why it was written which is why we should read each of them. As Christians it is VERY SIGNIFICANT that we understand each book of the Bible because God has given them to us in order to know WHO HE IS, WHAT HE EXPECTS AND HOW HE OPERATES. Yes, WE HAVE 66 BIBLICAL BOOKS TO TEACH US HOW TO LIVE TO PLEASE GOD....GET TO KNOW THEM DEAR CHRISTIAN. Today in Ephesians 1:21-24 we are going to observe the CAUSE AND EFFECT OF OUR POSITION IN CHRIST...A SUBJECT THAT WHEN WE UNDERSTAND IT WILL TRULY ENHANCE OUR LIFE AND SERVICE FOR CHRIST. So let's take a close look at what the Word of God has to teach us about our WONDERFUL POSITION IN CHRIST.
NOTE: In the first 11 verses of Ephesians 1, Paul lays down the FOUNDATION OF OUR POSITION IN CHRIST that includes our Spiritual Blessings (Vs. 3), our Election, Predestination and Adoption (Vss. 2,3), our Redemption through the Blood of Christ (Vs. 7) and our Eternal Inheritance through Christ (Vs. 11). ALL OF THIS IS DONE FOR THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY - VS. 12. HOW DID ALL OF THIS COME TO US AND WHAT IS THE ETERNAL EFFECT OF IT ALL? THE PASSAGE BEFORE US PROVIDES THOSE ANSWERS.

"THE MAN WHO PLEASES GOD"
SCRIPTURE: JOB 1:1-2:13
TEXT: JOB 1:1
(A FATHER'S DAY SERMON)
INTRO: On Father's Day, it is quite common for pastors to give a special sermon about FATHERS. Such sermons are always needed and, for the most part, are welcomed because FATHERS PLAY SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART IN GOD'S PLAN FOR THE HOME, THE CHURCH AND THE SOCIETY. For instance, consider some biblical texts: Deuteronomy 6:3-9 (Fathers implied); Ephesians 6:4; 1 Timothy 3:4; Prov.13:24. CERTAINLY GOD HONORS GODLY FATHERS! SOCIETY APPRECIATES GODLY FATHERS! I APPRECIATE MY GODLY FATHER! But in today's message we are going to broaden the spectrum somewhat and go from a focus on FATHERS to focusing on MEN in general. The message title is THE MAN WHO PLEASES GOD! SIR - ARE YOU A MAN WHO PLEASES GOD? Such a man is the MAN GOD WANTS WHO WILL MAKE A SPIRITUAL IMPACT UPON THE HOME, THE CHURCH AND SOCIETY. So today, let's take a look at BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES FOR THE MAN WHO PLEASES GOD.

"A DIVINE DISCOURSE ON LOVE"
TEXT: VERSES 34,35
INTRO: Do you love others? Oh, I am sure most of us would answer "YES" to that question, but let's dig a bit deeper. DO YOU REALLY LOVE OTHERS, NOT JUST IN WORD, BUT IN ACTION? DO YOU LOVE OTHERS WHO YOU DO NOT LIKE? DO YOU LOVE OTHERS WHO HAVE HARMED YOU? DO YOU LOVE YOUR ENEMIES? WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU PUT ON THOSE YOU LOVE? WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN TO LOVE OTHERS? Well, these are some questions for us to keep in our mind as we study down through John chapter 13 where we have A DISCOURSE ON LOVE FROM THE MOUTH OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

"THE WEATHER..IS IT NATURAL OR SUPERNATURAL?"
TEXT: VERSE 13
INTRO: Most of us have some interest in the WEATHER. Probably 80% of the people under the sound of my voice check the weather forecast each day to see what is "SUPPOSED TO COME THEIR WAY" weather-wise. Recently in America we have been having some interesting and even in some cases, some destructive weather. In fact, an article on SKY NEWS for May 29th said: "THE UNITED STATES LOOKS LIKE A WAR ZONE AFTER 500 TORNADOES IN 30 DAYS, WITH TUESDAY (MAY 28) BREAKING A 40 YEAR RECORD BY MARKING THE 12TH DAY IN A ROW WITH AT LEAST EIGHT TORNADO REPORTS. SEVERE WEATHER HAS BEEN SWEEPING ACROSS THE US MIDWEST, INJURING HUNDREDS AND DESTROYING BUILDINGS, PROMPTING CLAIMS THAT AREAS OF THE COUNTRY HAVE BEEN LEFT LIKE A WAR ZONE. SOME 55 TWISTERS ARE ESTIMATED TO HAVE TOUCHED DOWN ON MONDAY ACROSS EIGHT STATES, STRETCHING FROM IDAHO TO COLORADO." (REFER TO USA TODAY - 5/30/19). To say the least, that is excessive weather! THE QUESTION IS: DOES GOD HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS OR IS IT ALL JUST BY THE CHANCE OF NATURE? In other words, "IS THE WEATHER NATURAL OR SUPERNATURAL?" Today we are going to examine that question from the Bible, the WORD OF GOD, in order to get a BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW of the weather.

A TIME TO REMEMBER...GOD"
INTRO: Today we are in the midst of the MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, which is a time when we remember those who have given their lives for our nation. According to one statistic, at least 1.1 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN WARS AS THEY FOUGHT TO PROTECT OUR NATION. Many people in our area are members of GOLDSTAR FAMILIES that have lost family members in the military. OUR VETERANS, BOTH DEAD AND ALIVE, MUST BE REMEMBERED AND RESPECTED, ALONG WITH THEIR FAMILIES. But on this MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND there are others to be remembered as well. ● Our Families ● Our Heritage ● Our Day of Salvation ● Our Mentors
