Let the knowledge of your Father’s calling, inheritance, and power in Christ overwhelm your heart, so that you are excited to be in God’s church.
Continually increase your understanding of your Father in Christ:
I. Know the hope of His calling
Ephesians 1.4, 1.18, 2.7, 4.1, 4.4; 1 Peter 1.3, 3.15
II. Know the riches of His inheritance
Ephesians 1.7, 1.18, 2.4, 2.7, 3.8, 3.16; Colossians 2.2
III. Know the greatness of His power
Ephesians 1.19, 1.21, 2.2, 3.7, 3.16, 3.20, 6.12; 2 Peter 1.3
“Our thinking about who we are as Christians should not begin with what we can discover about ourselves by self-analysis. Rather, it begins with what God says about those who trust in Christ.”- Sinclair B. Ferguson, Children of the Living God
