This past Sunday I preached Ephesians 1:7-11; “Celebrating Redemption.” We sang a favorite Fanny Crosby hymn, “Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!

Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
Redeemed through His infinite mercy,
His child and forever I am.

The Apostle Paul strings together one long Greek sentence in Ephesians 1:3-14, exaulting in the work of God the Father (Eph 1:4-6), God the Son (Eph. 1:7-10), and the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13-14). I wrote and added an extra verse to the Crosby hymn and thought I’d share it here.

Elect by the will of the Father,
Redeemed by the blood of the Son,
Sealed by the work of the Spirit,
Praise to our God three in one.

I praise god for all the things that you do. We were talking about you before I left for this trip, and I was praying with my small group. I am in awe of how God is using you, a man without physical sight, but amazing spiritual sight, to share the knowledge of God’s word and help give others sight. I am always in awe when I come here, and see what God has done. Thank you so much for sticking to God’s Sovereignty, and know that there are many people praying for you!
