Bible Text: Ephesians 1:15-23 | Pastor Keith Bergstrom
Series: Ephesians: Sit-Walk-Stand!
Christianity doesn’t begin with “Do”, it begins with “Done”. Before we walk and do and live out our faith, we sit and rest our weight on what God, through Christ, has done. Sit and rest as a beloved, adopted, child of God. Rest, knowing you have been freed (ransomed) for sins bondage. Rest in your restored (reconciled) relationship with God. Sit and rest knowing the purpose of your life is enveloped by the larger, praise worthy, story of God. Rest in the fact that you can know God personally and intimately. Rest, knowing you have the resources of Christ’s incomparably, great, power to battle evil. Don’t walk too quickly. First, sit and rest in who you are because of what God, through Christ, has done.
