Text: Ephesians 1:15-23
This message was preached by Pastor Don Harrelson on Sunday June 24, 2018, at Cumberland Bible Church, Cumberland, Md.
How worthy is the God you worship?
If you were to give God all your earthly possessions as a thank offering, would he be worthy of that?
If you were to serve God every moment of your life in selfless ministry to others, would he be worthy of that?
If you were to give your body to be burned at the stake of his name, would he be worthy of that?
If you were to find a hymnal and sing every song it contained a hundred times over to the glory of God, would he be worthy of that?
To these and hundreds of imaginary situations like them, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”
God is worthy of your greatest gift, your noblest act of service, your very life, for “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.” (Micah 7:18)
Praise God for His worthy character!
