The gospel is based in the generosity of God. John 3:16 states, “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son.” The Apostle Paul's New Testament letter to the Ephesians describes the generosity of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It reveals that in Christ, we have been adopted, bought, and sealed by the love of God. We have been saved by grace through faith. We were dead but now have been raised with Christ. Why do we need a message like the one found in Ephesians? Because we need to be reminded that we are not only saved by the generosity of God, we are also called to live generously in light of his gift to us.
