In this weeks message Pastor Travis brings us a message called Learning to Stand.
It is an in depth look of the book of Ephesians.
1) Christs body expresses his fullness in the earth
2) Both Jews and Gentiles become one body in Christ
3) To empower, equip, and mature believer to enforce victory over evil
Hosea 8:4 (NKJV)
4 “They set up kings, but not by Me; They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them. From their silver and gold They made idols for themselves—
That they might be cut off.
Ephesians 1:3-6 (NKJV)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He [a]made us accepted in the Beloved.
In order to stand you need to understand that God chose you.
He with great pleasure adopted you.
