Message: “A Love Greater than We Can Imagine! (Ephesians 3:14-21)” from Dr. Thomas A. Riley

A Love Greater than We Can Imagine! (Ephesians 3:14-21)

This sermon is a sequel to my last sermon titled “Getting it All Together” from Ephesians. In the first chapter of Ephesians, the apostle Paul describes God’s purpose as to “get all things in heaven and on earth together in Christ” (Eph. 1:10). God makes this move not just in the creation of humankind, but in what happens next. Our God doesn’t leave us to our own devices and destruction; rather, He breaks into history, coming in the flesh He pursues us! Paul describes the work of God dramatically, with God the Father “choosing” us, the Son Jesus “redeeming” us, and the Holy Spirit “sealing” us. The very sovereignty of God at work in full force … with you as the focus! We see how the sovereigns of the world behave. Sitting on thrones, in throne rooms, giving audience to few and deciding according to their whim and their own private (often greedy and gluttonous) interest. The sovereignty of God is exercised in just the opposite way. It’s a way called “love.” In fact, the apostle John describes God this way, very simply: “God is love” (1 John 4:8). He acts on our behalf in the powerful work of Jesus.
