STIMULATE

** As our study last time was coming to a close, we considered the importance of meditating on "the hope of His calling, the riches of the glory of His inheritance, and the surpassing greatness of His power (dunamis)" that works toward us who believe. Have you found that meditating on those wonderful truths has been helpful in your daily walk with Christ?

Absolutely! When the trials or tests of each day try to wear me down, it is so refreshing to think on the truths of God's word which lift us above the drudgery of this world.

MOTIVATE

** Having completed our study of chapter one, we have seen God's eternal plan for our redemption. But, what is the immediate result of that plan? Today the apostle Paul continues his theme of teaching about all that we have gained "in Christ". We are going to see that God's plan has caused us to be "Created in Christ" and the impact that it should have on our daily lives. We will be looking at three aspects of that plan, namely:

1) Our Position in the Plan
2) God's Pardon in the Plan
3) Our Practice in the Plan

Let's begin by reading through the passage as we set our hearts towards the treasure of God's precious Word.

Read passage (V.1-3) (V.4-7) (V.8-10)

Opening Prayer
