"But Now" - A Message from Ephesians 2:11-22

Hello Friends,

Words Matter!
In fact, they can change your life.

There are two seemingly innocuous words in Ephesians 2 that can go unnoticed, yet are so profound. They are...

Paul is comparing life BEFORE Jesus and AFTER Jesus.  He lists the extraordinary blessings of life AFTER coming to faith in Jesus by His grace (Ephesians 2:8-10).   In this message I try to show the listener how much profoundly better life is AFTER we follow Jesus than it is BEFORE.

I trust that the Lord will speak to you in this message. Let me know what you think!

God bless, Kirk

"Escaping the Tired Life" - a Message from Ephesians 1:9-14

Hello friends,

It's been a while since I shared a message as I've been traveling over the past few months.  But now I'm back with this message that I hope will be helpful.

So many people live the "tired" life. Exhaustion may be the epidemic of our day.  As Christians, we try to put our best foot forward and pretend like we're fine, but we are tired, too!

I hope this message will encourage you and reconnect you to your Source of Energy for life.  Even when we're busy, we can live the energized life of faith.  Let me know what you think and how the Lord spoke to you through his Word.

God bless you, Kirk McCormick
