This Sunday at Park Church, we’re in week two of Mission, working through our new mission statement and its meaning. We’ll focus on a key identitfier of Jesus’ disciples: people who have been Made Alive by the God of Grace.
1. Read through our text, Ephesians 2:1–10.
A disciple of Jesus is one who has first been made alive by Jesus. We need this new life precisely because sin—our “sickness unto death”—has rotted the joyful and abundant life for which we were designed. “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved” (Ephesians 2:4–5).
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
