Ephesians, Chapter One, Lesson Three

REDEMPTION IN CHRIST            Page 6

EXTRICATE

** We have seen today that we gained our "Redemption in Christ". What elements of that redemption did you notice along the way in our study?

V. 6 - It was "freely bestowed", with His grace.

V. 7 - It came at great cost, "through His blood".

V. 7 - It provided total forgiveness!

V. 8 - It was "lavished" upon us, abundantly!

V. 9 - It gave us our understanding of the mystery.

V.10 - It was planned before time.

DELINEATE

** Which of these wonderful truths causes you to want to express a heartfelt thanks to your loving heavenly Father?

All of them of course, but in particular, the tremendous cost of my redemption makes me very thankful the He paid a debt He did not owe, because I owed a debt I could not pay, I needed Someone to wash my sins away.

EVALUATE

** When you put your thankfulness in perspective with the rest of your life, what impact should that same truth have on your desire to obey Christ in attitude as well as action? cf. John 15:14

"You are My friends, if you do what I command you"!

ACTIVATE

** This next week, to help keep our hearts tuned to what the Holy Spirit is teaching us, I would like to invite you to write down on a 3 x 5 card or piece of paper, the one thing you have noted today. Then, place it where you will see it daily.

May our Lord be pleased with our loving gratitude, put on display each day through our obedient hearts!
