Fuel for the Surrendered Life

Ephesians 3:1-13      Sermon Resources    |   10 April 2022



In the sermon this week Pastor Billy examines Paul’s words in Ephesians 3:1-13 to discover what they show us of the surrendered life Paul lived.


“These people have got rid of the tiresome business of adjusting the rival claims of Self and God by the simple expedient of rejecting the claims of Self altogether. The old egoistic will has been turned round, reconditioned, and made into a new thing. The will of Christ no longer limits theirs; it is theirs. All their time, in belonging to Him, belongs also to them, for they are His.”      - C.S. Lewis, Three Kinds of Men
