It’s hard to get too excited about solid theology (like in Ephesians 1) when Christians behave¬† so poorly that nonbelievers aren’t interested in all Jesus has to offer.

Jesus “The Body”

We spend lots of time thinking about getting our bodies in shape.

But what kind of shape is the church in these days?

What do you think it would look like?

Power Prayer

In verses 15-21, Paul writes a powerful prayer for his readers.

Who do you pray for?

Belief

In verses 11-14, Paul discusses the complex interaction between human belief and God’s will.

Predestined

In verses 3-10, Paul emphasizes that Jesus pursues us.¬† It’s not a one-way street, totally dependent upon our own efforts to become right with God.

Introduction

In Ephesians 1:1-2, Paul includes his typical greetings.

However, it is noted that not all early manuscripts included the words “in Ephesus,” so it’s likely that this letter was intended for an audience over a wide geographical range that happened to be centered around Ephesus.

Outline of Ephesians 1

  1. Greetings
  2. Spiritual Blessings
  3. Paul’s Prayers
