This sermon explores the concept of power set forth in Ephesians.
According to Ephesians God's power--true power!--is working in the world and in our lives. It is this power that was 'put to work' at the resurrection of the Messiah. And it is this power that is now at work in the life of the church, which is the Messiah's body. Paul, himself in chains for preaching the gospel, is able to trust that this revelatory power tells the truth about the world, even in difficult circumstances. Can we see the world Paul sees? The world revealed by the 'gospel of our salvation'? Can we trust this power, over against all the little powers that compete for our allegiance? Ephesians exhorts us to embrace this calling.
