FAITHFUL IN CHRIST   Ephesians 1:1-2             Print this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** Where do you live out your Christian life? Do you realize that our Heavenly Father sees you "in" a certain location? Paul's letter to the Ephesians begins with a preoccupation for the reality that every child of God has been placed "in Christ" and as such is equipped to live for His glory. That personal relationship is the basis for all of our blessings and joy in this life. What impact will it have on our ability to obey the word of God and to then witness for the gospel truth?

MOTIVATE

** Over the next six months, it is going to be our joy to learn together all that the Holy Spirit has for us in this marvelous letter by the apostle Paul to the believers at Ephesus. Just over the next month and a half, here in chapter one, we will see Paul address six critical issues in the life of a Christian.

They are:

FAITHFUL IN CHRIST - Ephesians 1:1-2
BLESSED IN CHRIST - Ephesians 1:3-6a
REDEMPTION IN CHRIST - Ephesians 1:6b-10
HOPE IN CHRIST - Ephesians 1:11-14
THANKFUL IN CHRIST - Ephesians 1:15-17
STRENGTH IN CHRIST - Ephesians 1:18-23

** As we approach this treasure we hold in our hands, what do you suppose is our greatest prayerful need?

That we might understand, learn and apply all that Christ is about to teach us so that our lives might be lived out for His glory!

If we will do that, we can join those in Asia Minor who, by their lifestyle, came to be known as "Faithful in Christ".
