How do we come to know God? Though some may seek him within themselves or outside in the natural world, the Bible teaches that we can only come to God through his provision in Christ. In this message from Ephesians 1, Alistair Begg explains the redemption that Jesus accomplished for us by his sacrifice. As we recognize that we cannot redeem ourselves, the riches of God's grace draw our hearts to trust in what Christ has done.
7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9making known3 to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
