Message Transcript The church exists to introduce you and your family to God...lead you to a lifetime of belonging with others...show you where you can make a difference as you serve the Kingdom of God in healing the world...and ultimately usher you into your hard wired calling and destiny for which you were made. This sermon will answer the question: Who is God? 1. God is the hope giver. I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called. -Ephesians 1:16-19 2. God is the power giver. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms. -Ephesians 1:19-20 3. God is the life giver. But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. -Ephesians 2:4-5 4. God is the love giver. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. -Ephesians 2:18-19 The church is the hope of the world and the hope for your best life because the church answers the question - Who is God?
