The book of Ephesians was written to people who lived in a culture that was saturated with idols. The Ephesians were constantly tempted to look to something other than Jesus to give them their identity. Sadly, things haven’t changed a whole lot in the last 2,000 years. We live in a culture that constantly tells us that our identity is found in what we have or have not done; what job we have or what career we are hoping for; how we have succeeded or how we have failed. This, simply, is anti-gospel and anti-Jesus. The gospel says that the identity we all need is one that cannot be taken away by our failure or circumstances. The identity that we need is found only in Christ.
In this sermon series, Pastor Brett will spend 16 weeks teaching through the book of Ephesians in hopes of helping everyone fully realize our unshakeable identity in Christ.
*Pastor Mark Driscoll, and all of Mars Hill Church have been a huge blessing to us at Ekklesia. The sermon layout of our study through the book of Ephesians is almost identical to Pastor Mark’s sermon series “Who Do You Think You Are?” We use this layout with full permission as a part of the Mars Hill Campaigns group. Thank you Pastor Mark and all of those at Mars Hill for paving the way and leading out in Jesus-exalting, gospel-centered, Bible-saturated, God-gloryfing ministry that’s all about Jesus.
