    Ephesians 2:1-10

To help answer these difficult issues, we go to God’s Word and discover several timeless principles for how Christians should think about the relationship between the church and the state.

    In Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, the main character experiences Christmas past, present, and future. In this Easter sermon, we visit the resurrection of the past, present, and future. We talk about how Jesus’ resurrection in the past guarantees our resurrection in the future. However, the only way we can have confidence and hope in this future event is if we experience a resurrection in the present. We learn from 1 Corinthians 15 what this involves and how we can experience this resurrection.
