Ephesians, Chapter One, Lesson Five

HOPE IN CHRIST            Page 6

DELINEATE

** As kind of an overview of our last three studies together, let's look at what we have learned about our common salvation.

1) God chose us (V.4), we believed (V.13)
2) God lavished His grace upon us (V.8), we pour praise upon Him (V.6, 12 and 14)
3) God sealed us (V.13), we have assurance (V.14)

EVALUATE

** Specifically out of today's passage, what new phrase did we see that describes the gospel?

V.13 - "...the message of Truth..."

** How important is it that we, described as "God's own possession", share His message of Truth with the lost and dying world around us?

It is vital. We need to be prepared for any opportunity that the Lord may place in our path.
cf. 1Peter 3:15 "...sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence..."

ACTIVATE

** If we are those who truly "Hope in Christ" we should be excited about sharing the hope that is within us. Let's commit to the Lord now, in a time of silent prayer, that we will be alert this week for the opportunities He brings our way to share the good news of the gospel...the message of Truth!
