Three times in Ephesians 1:3-14, Paul writes that our salvation is all about the glory of God. He writes that our salvation is “to the praise of his glorious grace…” “to the praise of his glory…” “to the praise of His glory!” And as you read through this passage you see that God has chosen and adopted us for His glory, redeemed and forgiven us for His glory, and sealed and secured us for His glory. Our salvation is all about His glory.
And as His chosen and adopted, redeemed and forgiven, sealed and secured sons and daughters, He’s saved us to show the world His glory! And since Christ has not yet come and we’ve not yet come into possession of our inheritance, we know that God’s not done saving people, so our mission is for His glory!
That means evangelism is telling the world, your family, neighbor, co-worker, teammate, friends what great things God has done for our salvation. God is glorified when His mighty works of grace are made known.
Now, as God’s people in the Ahwatukee Foothills, we want to spread the news of His glory and grace to everyone we know. We want to pray for people to know Him, invite them to come and hear of Him, and share the gospel with them!
