Ephesians 2:1-10 is Paul's beautiful, honest, powerful explanation of The Gospel. The Gospel is nothing less than the grace of God bringing us from death to life. The big picture theme of Ephesians is the purpose of God being revealed as uniting all things in Christ, things in Heaven and on Earth to the praise of His glory. This Gospel, gloriously presented in this section, shows how God powerfully and lovingly brings us into this purpose, being united to Christ and united to each other.

16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! 17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. 18 What is my reward then? Verily…

"God's fools." This is what Paul actually called himself and his fellow leaders whom God used to build the church in Corinth. What does it mean to be God's fool?

What kind of worship does God accept? Or perhaps, a more basic question is, does God accept the worship of every Christian in every church gathering? We know that there were times when he rejected the worship offered from his people in the Old Testament. Does he ever reject the worship of Christians? And what about the spiritual gifts of speaking in tongues and prophecy? Paul writes good, solid instruction in these matters and so many more in this passage. Come with the Grace United crew as we discover what it means to offer to the Lord "open worship" and "ordered worship"
