       / Eph. 3:1-6 \      
  ───────── 
 Paul    WROTE   WE
● GIVEN BY REVELATION TO PAUL
● PAUL WROTE IT DOWN
● OTHER PEOPLE READ IT
● HOLY SPIRIT KNOWLEDGE IMPLEMENTED
POWER IS IN THE WORD
● HEARD THE GOSPEL
● BELIEVED
● SEALED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE
His Word delivers what we need to survive
All Scripture is given for instruction in righteousness  
God’s righteousness is revealed from faith to faith
God’s grace gives us understanding & knowledge
The gospel came through the revelation of Christ
Our common salvation is in one faith once delivered
Scripture tones our patience and comforts in hope
Faith is larger than seeing in hope of what is better
Thinking beyond what is written leads to corruption
God’s word effectively works in those who believe
Faith comes by hearing, & hearing by God’s word
Faith in His truth pleases God in a call to seek Him
Paul stated the whole counsel of God for us to read
The implanted word is able to save your soul
Words of God bring truth to life
  Scripture says about itself:  
             Is Truth
             Substance of Faith
             Is Comprehensible
             Is Searchable
             Cannot be Broken
             Is Knowable
             States Jesus is the Christ
             Is Holy
             Gives Hope
             Is for all Nations
             Is God Breathed
In a world of confusion God orders reality
  How Scripture helps us:  
             Good for reproof, correction, instruction
             Convicts
             Converts
             Gives Life
             Gives Understanding
             Enlightens
             Sets One Free
             Sanctifies
             Cleanses
             Cuts to the heart
It is the power of the word that restores souls
God wants us to consider His word before we speak
Scripture is truth & contains the substance of faith
Scripture is knowable, searchable, and not broken
Scripture reveals Jesus is the Christ & gives us hope
Scripture is Holy & for all nations - of God’s making
False teachers will validate ungodly doctrines
Greed will drive an exploiter’s deceptive words
Unbridled words will only increase ungodliness
Study is good for reproof, correction, & instruction
Study convicts, converts, gives life, & understanding
Study enlightens, sets free, sanctifies, & cleanses
True Faith holds fast to hearing His piercing word
God is reconciling us through Jesus with His word

As is a coin, hypocrisy can be a two sided wobbling fence.
● Do we have ears to hear?
● Do we want to hear?
● Do we want the truth?

Jesus wants all to come to His garden.

    6.  Not Kill
    7.  No Adultery

  1st Day of the week ≠ The New Christian Sabbath  
The First Day of the week has always been important.
● God created the Heavens and the earth.

● The church began on Pentecost.

FORCEFULNESS OF RELYING ON GOD’S WORD
  1. STAND FIRM IN ONE SPIRIT
  2. ONE MIND STRIVING TOGETHER  
  3. NOT ALARMED BY OPPONENTS

                            ┌─> Gospel truth.

                              └─> Set free from sin.


We owe Respect to the Word.
It is HIS letter to us to learn what HE wants.

GOD’S WORD IS BLESSED

Common Denominator = The Word

Truth Comes by the Word of God
God’s word is truth
The entirety of Your word is truth
The LORD is near to all who call upon Him in truth
We are called to worship in spirit and truth

The truth shall make you free
God desires truth in our inward parts
Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ of the Father is full of grace and truth
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life
The Spirit is truth
The Spirit of truth has guided us into all truth
God cannot lie
Truth fills all that He is
Buy the truth, and do not sell it
Be a worker rightly dividing the word of truth
People will turn away from the truth & to fables
Turn from iniquities and understand His truth
To abide in God one must speak the truth in heart
There is a spirit of truth and the spirit of error
Let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'
If we say that we have no sin the truth is not in us
Let not mercy and truth forsake you

→ do not be drunk
→ be filled with the Spirit
→ speaking in your heart to the Lord

WHY CHRISTIANS OBEY GOD'S WORD
1. Because it is the King’s Will for His citizens.
2. It Is A Natural Result of Our Love For Others
3. The Value of the Soul
4. Because We Are A New Testament Church
5. Because It Is Easy

The work of God – What He has done through
Jesus Christ – Privileges of being a Christian
– The calling

Our work – Responsibilities;
- The walk - Be worthy of the calling

1-3 =  
How God blesses us - US IN CHRIST

4-6 =  
How we bless Him - CHRIST IN US
  He chose us in Him  
To Himself
His grace
His blood
In Him
His will
His glory
TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY = PURPOSE OF THE CHRISTIAN
God’s prayer for us.
1. Know what is the hope of His calling
2. Riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
3. (Surpassing) Exceeding greatness of
     His power toward those that believe

What God hopes for us.

The Ephesians worshipped the Goddess Diana.
"BOOBS" ├─> What made the city tick.
└─> The way they walked.

Paul wrote many of the New Testament Letters.

Paul's problem was not that he was:
                • A SINNER
                • UNTALENTED


Paul's problem was:
                • BAD REPUTATION
                • NOT LIKE THEM


What Paul did was:
                • TAUGHT THE TAUGHT
                • HELPED THE SAVED STAY SAVED


Problems Corinthians had:
           • Affections - Fruit of the world or that of above.
           • Did not like his rebukes.

Most important:
           • Our feelings with God.
           • Where we stand with Him.

Reasons Paul has no creditability.
~ "Give him the pink slip!" ~

  1.  Paul is an Imposter
  2.  He is a Fanatic
  3.  He was Deceived
  4.  His Testimony Changed  

Reasons Paul has creditability.
~ "Give him the green card!" ~

  1.  Paul is a Real Person
