After Paul has shown us the wonders of Christ and all our riches in Him, he now moves from showing us who we are in Christ Jesus to how we should live before a watching world - he calls us to walk in a manner worthy of our great calling.

The Apostle Paul transitions from the wonder of what God has done in Christ for his people to the call for those who belong to Him to walk in a manner worthy of their calling.  In preparation for that, he reminds them of the power of God and the deep love of Jesus.

We often look around the world and wonder if there's meaning to what's going on.  We wonder if there's purpose to to history.  The Scripture says "yes." God is working out His plan and purpose according to His promise that is realized in Christ Jesus.

In the body of Christ, it is not us who offer peace to each other or to others.  Peace is graciously imposed upon the body by the blood of Jesus.

Paul calls us to remember where we were and who we were apart from Christ so that we rejoice and glory when we are reminded of those wonderful words, "But God!"

On Mission's Sunday, John Warren reminds us of the mission of God to redeem a people for himself.  And he reminds us that while God doesn't need us, He chooses to use us in this great privilege!

That You May Know! The Apostle Paul writes to the Ephesians why the wonderful, precious truths of the introduction aren’t just theological truths for the ivory tower but actually impact everyday faith and life.

Paul begins the letter to the Ephesians with one, very long sentence showing us what it really means to be blessed.  It is the golden chain of redemption, a panorama of God's purposes in Christ Jesus, from the past, to the present, to the future.

Greetings and Salutations are sometimes more than just a fancy "hello."  Sometimes, like here in Ephesians 1:1-2, they can teach us about God, about ourselves, and about the world around us.
