  4. 6. Ephesians 1:3-6 <ul><li>Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. </li></ul>
  5. 7. Ephesians 1:7-12 <ul><li>In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace 8that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. 9And he[ a ] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment - </li></ul>
  6. 8. Ephesians 1:7-12 <ul><li>to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. </li></ul>
  7. 9. Ephesians 1:13-14 <ul><li>And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation.

  11. 13. The Work of the Trinity Planning Accomplishing Securing Salvation
  12. 14. <ul><li>What I mean is this. An ordinary simple Christian kneels down to say his prayers. He is trying to get into touch with God. But if he is a Christian he knows that what is prompting him to pray is also God: God, so to speak, inside him. But he also knows that all his real knowledge of God comes through Christ, the Man who was God - that Christ is standing beside him, helping him to pray, praying for him. </li></ul>
  13. 15. <ul><li>You see what is happening. God is the thing to which he is praying the goal he is trying to reach. God is also the thing inside him which is pushing him on - the motive power. God is also the road or bridge along which he is being pushed to that goal. So that the whole threefold life of the three-personal Being is actually going on in that ordinary little bedroom where an ordinary man is saying his prayers. </li></ul><ul><li>- C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity </li></ul>
  14. 16. Homework <ul><li>How you would explain the doctrine of the trinity to someone who wasn’t familiar with it? </li></ul><ul><li>Reflect on how the Trinity impacts your prayer life. </li></ul>
