We will be concluding the opening doxology of praise. Here Paul emphasizes the goal of our salvation as he describes the glorious inheritance of God. We will consider the two ways that this inheritance can be understood (God is our inheritance and we are his). Paul speaks of the Holy Spirit’s role in assuring us of these things. The text is Ephesians 1:11-14. We will consider these points:
- The goal of our salvation.
- The inclusion of the Jew and Gentile believers.
- The role of the Holy Spirit.
- The already/not yet.
- Application to us today
