For the Sake of the Gospel: The City of Ephesus (Part 1 of 15)

For the Sake of the Gospel from Alistair Begg, we follow the Apostle Paul from Corinth to Caesarea on his final missionary trek.

Throughout his journey, we see evidence of God’s grace, providential protection, and provision. God’s guidance and care underpinned Paul’s confidence and enabled him to live out the faith he proclaimed.

18 Words: Grace

Grace is God’s undeserved favour, His unmerited love. The word translated ‘grace’ in the New Testament (charis) is used in the Greek Old Testament to render the Hebrew chen, also translated ‘grace’ in the KJV, which signifies the ‘favour’ that a suppliant ‘finds’ in the eyes of a superior person from whom he cannot claim favourable treatment as of right.

(Matthew 7:7-11)
