Introduction
    Ted Turner – ‘The mouth of the south’
    “Christianity is a religion for losers”

 Before the foundation of the earth He chose a family


 Before our wills willed anything God willed to have us

    Number one: Redemption


    Number two: Revelation

 

The security of the Christian life – God the Holy Spirit seals us (1:13-14)
    You are sealed

    You have been sold


The summit of the Christian life – God’s praises sung by us (1:3, 6, 12, & 14)
