"Human Redeemed"

These are my notes from Apex. It was a blessing to see Hope M and Kristen P. skype from the Philippines. The hands and feet of Christ.

Ephesians 2:4-10

You were made alive:

1. Out of an act of love. Not because of your morality, not because of your Christian upbringing. God is saying "I am choosing to love this dead body through mercy"

2. Through the resurrection of Jesus. We need a second Adam(Jesus) If Jesus stayed in the grave..there would be no hope. Jesus physically rose and now we follow the track record of the second Adam...not the first.

3. To a new standing before God. We are no longer enemies of the cross. Our standing is right now...not just the future.

4. To be a reflector of God's greatness. God uses the church as an object lesson to the angels. We do not wear veils. Practically..What are you reflecting at work, to your friends, to your family.

5. To be involved in God's redemptive story. Many have reduced the gospel to getting out of Hell. Jesus saved us for good works..for a mission ..just as Hope and Kristen are are we.
