This coming Sunday I will conclude my preaching on Paul's letter to the Ephesians. I wanted to start with Ephesians because I want Christ Baptist Church to be committed to God's plan for the church. We need a high veiw of the church. We need God's view of His church. We need Christ's passionate love for His bride.
I am a bit sad as I think about moving on from this great letter. I feel like I'm taking a close friend to the airport after a fruitful and life-changing visit. I will still be able to talk to this friend and benefit from frequent corespondence. But it will be a long time before we have a visit like this again.
If God gives me 50 years with Christ Baptist Church, I would love to preach through all of Scripture. It would be great to preach as a 78 year old man through Ephesians again and pass the torch to the next generation.
So, I'm preaching an overview/summary message of Ephesians this Sunday (God willing). Pray for me. This is a huge task. You can download most of the individual messages from our website.
