Ephesians 2 paints a very clear picture of our salvation. The apostle Paul tells the church at Ephesus that they had been spiritually dead, but God made them alive by His great mercy and grace. Paul emphasizes that this salvation is completely accomplished by God and not at all based on any good work of man. But what place then do our good works have in our salvation? The text tells us that works are the very purpose of God in us, that we were “created unto good works” and that He has “ordained that we should walk in them.” In this sermon, Rev. David Overway provides a thorough survey of the believer's ability to perform good works and the vital role they serve in his life. The sermon is divided into these parts: 1. In Christ Jesus 2.

The apostle Paul addresses children in Ephesians 6:1-3, commanding them to obey their parents. This simple instruction is directly antithetical to the course of this world because the way of the world is rebellion. Today’s society is characterized by disobedience to parents which is worked by Satan, the original rebel to God. This text is also contrary to our sinful natures which constantly rebel under authority. How then are children able to obey? What is the calling of parents in regard this command? The text also mentions God’s fifth commandment to obey parents as the first commandment with promise. What is this promise and why is it so important? Rev. David Overway examines this very relevant passage of scripture in his sermon which is divided in this manner: 1. Their Own Parents 2. In the Lord 3. With a Promise
