The gospel describes our value to God. Our belief in the gospel seals our minds and hearts with the knowledge that God loves us. With this belief as our foundation, we can face the hatred and wickedness around us with a different perspective. Rather than facing hate with hate, we can face all that we see with the love of Christ pouring out of us.
Elder Bryce shows that our belief of the gospel is the key to our joy and peace. Being sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise only comes when we trust Jesus. This resolved mind will allow us to face the turmoil and wickedness that vexes the world today.
One of the most comforting phrases of the gospel is found in this passage: “He shall not fail.”
Today's edition of Triumphal Feast continues an expository look at the Apostle Paul's letter to the Church at Ephesus. In the previous episode we learned that nothing short of the gracious and awesome power of God was necessary to redeem us from our sins. Part 2 of the message "In Whom We Have Redemption" describes to us how we can face all the trials and troubles of our lives because of what Jesus has already done.
The simplicity of grace says that we are free to do good just because it is good!
Today's edition of Triumphal Feast continues in our study of Paul's letter to the Church at Ephesus. This message focuses on chapter 1 verse 7 describing the gracious power of God needed to redeem us from our sins.
The fulfillment of the Sabbath in Jesus Christ tells us that we can rest from our labors to try and save ourselves from our sins. Jesus has already saved us and He is set down at the right hand of God and He is resting.
Today's edition of Triumphal Feast concludes the message "How Do I Know That I Am in Christ?" When we understand this fact, we can live in the peace of the finished work of Jesus Christ. Today's message picks up in 1st John 2:5.
Last time on Triumphal Feast we joined the Apostle Paul in his doxology about God's joyful will in salvation by grace. Today's message explores how it is that we can know that we as individuals are part of God's elect family.
This edition of Triumphal Feast concludes the message "Adoring God." In this sermon, we find that the doctrines of grace (predestination, election, etc.) are the basis for our praise to God. God had pleasure in exhibiting His love toward us in these doctrines. Therefore, it should be our good pleasure to praise Him for it!
