Gospel Community Church had the distinct privilege of hosting guest preachers on two consecutive weeks in the summer of 2019. The second was John Bell, pastor of New City Baptist Church in Toronto, Canada. Pastor John delivered a tremendous exposition of Ephesians 2:1–10. He encouraged us with a gospel proclamation in which we learned that we were once dead in sin and enslaved to Satan and our wicked flesh until God intervened in His mercy to save us. This passage shows how the great power of God, exhibited in the resurrection and enthronement of Jesus, took Christians from existence under the power of the world, the flesh, and the devil . . . into a position of victory over those forces.
*NOTE* Pastor John references a hand-out that he expected our people to have…but Andrew forgot to print them, so we actually did not have them. Whoops!
