Big Idea: Worship the God and Father of Jesus because He chose us by His grace, redeemed us through His Son, and sealed us with His Spirit.
1. God is a Trinity = There is ONE God who has eternally existed in THREE separate and distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).
2. Worship the God and Father of Jesus - Ephesians 1:3
a. ETERNAL God and Father of Jesus
- Psalm 90:2
- God the Father eternally gives life, love, and glory to His Son
John 17:24; John 14:31; John 17:5
b. The Father is the eternal SOURCE of the Son
- The Nicene Creed
- John 1:2,14; John 5:26; John 17:24; Hebrews 1:3
c. The Father INITIATES, SETS THE EXAMPLE, and GIVE DIRECTION to His Son
- John 5:19-20
- The Father is the head of Christ - 1 Cor. 11:3
3. The Father chose us by His grace - Ephesians 1:3-6
- Every spiritual blessing
- Holy and blameless in love
- Adoption to himself
- To the praise of His glorious grace
4. The Father redeemed us through His Son - Ephesians 1:7-12
- Redemption & forgiveness
- To unite all things in Christ
- John 17:24-26
- To the praise of His glory
5. The Father sealed us with His Spirit - Ephesians 1:13-14
- When we heard and believed the Gospel - Galatians 4:4-7
- The guarantee of our inheritance - 1 Cor. 3:21-23; John 17:3
- To the praise of His glory
Oneness & Witness Takeaways:
1. Pray – Bring your needs and concerns boldly before your Heavenly Father who has adopted you and loves you.

2. Trust & obey – Trust the Father’s wisdom and love and obey Him in all things.

3. Image God in your relationships:
- Image the Father if you are called to initiate and lead, or
- Image the Son if you are called to respond and follow.

4. Praise Him – Share the Good News of God’s choosing, redeeming, and sealing with all the people in your life.
