Signed, Sealed and Delivered
There is a work in our lives that only God can do. Surrendering our lives to Jesus means that we give the Holy Spirit access into our lives to transform us into His image and to give us His character. It takes a willingness on our part to follow His Lordship over every area throughout our life. It is a sanctifying work that only the Children of God have the privilege to experience through faith in Christ. And all this work is done by the will of God from beginning to end. This sermon talks about how God values our lives and purchases us with His life to give us new life in Him!
25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give [g]place to the devil. 28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. 29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary [h]edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, [i]clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.Ephesians 4:25-32
