Ephesians 1:11-14

Big Idea: God's Glory Leads God's People To Worship And Mission

1) My confident assurance ignites a life of praise (v. 11-14)

My confident assurance is the Holy Spirit:

a) The Holy Spirit Secures Me (v. 13-14)

b) The Holy Spirit Sanctifies Me (1 Thess 4:3; John 16:13)

2) My courageous hope launches a life of mission (v. 11-14)

Courage is not the absence of fear but the presence of faith

1) "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." – Hebrews 11:1

2) "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, & whoever fears has not been perfected in love." – 1 John 4:18
