Blessed be God the Son

What is the purpose of the cosmos? Unbelief’s ultimate answer is “there is no reason.” For those who trust in Christ alone for salvation, there is a better answer. It found in the Word of God. “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible…All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist (Colossians 1:16-17). He created, sustains, and has redeemed all things for His purpose and glory. The right response is to acknowledge this truth and act appropriately, that is to trust and obey our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The sermon from Ephesians 1:7-12 (provided below) is intended to expand on these great truths. Here are the three main points of the sermon:

  1. In Christ, we have redemption and reconciliation
  2. In Christ, all things are gathered together
  3. “That we should be to the praise of His glory”
