Sunday Preview: Power.
May 14th, 2014 | John Chandler
If Jesus really rose from the dead, what are the implications for the world?
This Sunday, we’ll continue our discussion of Ephesians and what it means to be a people who “Practice Resurrection.” We’ll be focusing on Ephesians chapter 1:15-23. The author Paul, explains that same power which brought Jesus back from the dead is now at work in the people who are the church.
For Paul, this completely rearranges the universe. The power of Jesus resurrection places him over “rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.”
This Sunday, we’ll consider this monumental claim, that through Jesus, God has made his church immensely powerful.
What does it mean to be a people of power?
