New SermonCast: "Big God, Great Plans" Eph 1:3-14 #UMC
What do you think of when you hear the word “God”? Believe it or not, different people have many different ways of thinking about God. We don’t all have the exact same notions about what God is like or who God is. Sometimes our understanding of God is too small. Sometimes our understanding of God hinders knowing God. Sometimes people think of God as a cosmic cop just waiting to bust you for breaking his law. Others think of God through the lens of their experience with an abusive or absent father. This is why it is important to understand that our perception of God will shape our expectations of God. If we have a diminished view of God’s character, then we will expect him to act as small our our perception. So we need a big vision of a big God. And that’s just what we get in the opening chapter of Ephesians. This week’s SermonCast is an invitation to a bigger vision of a bigger God with big grace, big plans, and big glory.
