In this sermon, we look at the longest sentence in the New Testament. It's dense, epic, and wild but it's not a theological rant, it's an eruption of praise. Paul praises the Father for all he's done to bless his people IN and THROUGH Jesus Christ. We are blessed with so much more than we can see in Jesus, and it's all a part of God's plan that he set out before the foundation of the world -- we're told he blessed us, chose us, and predestined us. When Christians today hear the words "Chosen" or "Predestined", we can get a little squirmy. In Ephesians 1.3-10 we'll see that these words shouldn't be a source of controversy but a reason to celebrate the God who wanted a people to be blessed and find life in him.
