    • We Are His Workmanship Created In Christ Jesus Unto Good Works
      Ephesians 2-4-10
      2012-11-11
      SYNOPSIS:The Gospel is proclaimed succinctly in this classic and often misunderstood! passage from Ephesians. We go through it carefully, emphasizing that we must not only understand what Christ did for us, but also that this understanding places a moral obligation upon us. Every point made by the Apostle has a moral application to our daily lives, culminating in the significant, somewhat forgotten words (since they follow the famous and significant statement: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God") "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." This is important stuff! At the end of the homily, a pastoral exhortation regarding what we MUST expect when we attend the liturgy or any service (and how to learn to do this by degrees) and the MOST important prayer that a pastor must have in his heart when he celebrates any service.

    • Dead In Sins
      By Grace Are Ye Saved Through Faith
      Eph 2-4-10
      2015
      SYNOPSIS:What does it mean to be "dead in sins"? There are two ways to be "dead in sins", and one leads to life. We look at some examples from the Scriptures, and "define" other important words in Eph 2:4-10, that seem simple, but are not well understood: being "quickened", grace, faith, works which do no save and works without which we will not be saved. We also touch again as we did yesterday on our identity in Christ as His workmanship, and tell the sad story of a man who identified with free masonry and his grandfather above Christ. Do you know what is dead and what is alive? This is a critical question which you must answer many times each day.

    • Workmanship Created In Christ Jesus Unto Good Works
      Eph 2-4-10
      2015
      SYNOPSIS:Our society has an identity crisis. People identify themselves by many things - their wealth, success, politics, race, sexuality and many more things. Only one identity saves us. We discuss the life of Great Martyr Demetrius in light of the teaching on identity by St Paul: "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
