Today’s sermon on salvation comes from a larger series on the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. In this series we’re following the outline of the Apostles’ Creed, the oldest summary of biblical doctrine. It says, “I believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.” This is encapsulated by the doctrine of salvation.
We’re going to do a survey of all that the Bible says about salvation in Jesus Christ, which is actually right here in our passage from Ephesians. Paul says that Jesus Christ has “blessed us” with “every spiritual blessing.” This is what we mean by salvation. We’re going to learn how we get every spiritual blessing, what those spiritual blessings are, why we can have those spiritual blessings, and how to know whether you have them.
