On episode 59 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss Ephesians chapter 2. Paul spends the first part of this chapter reminding the church of the fact that they were dead in their sins. Thank goodness he doesn’t stop there and quickly follows up by explaining that but God, in his love and mercy, sent Jesus so we could be made alive together in Him! What does it mean to be God’s workmanship? Why is it so significant that we are now one body under Christ? Do our works really matter? Join us as we continue to learn about the wonderful truths of the gospel!

Quotes:

“When Jesus told Lazarus to come out of his tomb, Lazarus walked out, musty grave clothes and all. and when you were dead in your sins he called you with the gospel and he made you alive in Christ” -J.A. Medders

“Our good works are a reaction to the good gift. They do not earn us the good gift.”

Humble Calvinism pg 130 “God doesn’t need us as his coworkers - he isn’t lacking the strength or ability to spread the fame of his name or to call his people to faith in him...Sure he could do it all himself. Sure, he’ll call his people. But he chooses to let you participate in the greatest business on earth - bringing people from darkness to light, from hell to heaven.” -J.A. Medders

“We are created by the master creator and our identity is 100% in him, and if we remind ourselves of that it truly doesn’t matter what anyone else says.”

“It’s better to be in the waves with Jesus then in the boat without him” -Sharon Miller

“Peace is not the absence of chaos, but the presence of Jesus.”
