What Is Christ Doing Now...and Why?

Artwork for Becoming a People of Grace: An Exposition of Ephesians

Many Christians live every day disconnected not only from one another but also from God. This can lead to dysfunction in every area of life. However, when we accept Christ's sacrifice on the cross, we gain access to a source of power beyond our comprehension. The might that created Niagara Falls, that showered the earth with dazzling oceans, and that rolled the stone away from the tomb is at our disposal. This power stands ready to enable us to overcome temptation. It's available when depression overtakes us or when life's troubles overwhelm us. But if we don't connect to it, we're only as good as a waterless sprinkler or a darkened lamp.
