EPHESIANS

Today our church (Restoration Christian Church) begins reading through the book of Ephesians. This letter, written by the Apostle Paul, is broken down into 6 chapters.  We will read one chapter a day this week, completing the entire book on Saturday.  

Ephesians is divided into two sections.  The first section, chapters 1-3, is the teaching section of the book.  In these first 3 chapters, Paul teaches the church how blessed we are to be in Jesus Christ.  In fact, we are rich!  We have more blessings than we can even imagine. 

Then in the second section of Ephesians, chapters 4-6, Paul gives us the practical application from what we learned in chapters 1-3. In other words, once you realize how blessed you are in Jesus, it changes how you live. 

I pray as we read through Ephesians this week, we will understand who we are in Christ, how rich we are, and how to use those riches for God’s glory!
