FAITHFUL IN CHRIST Ephesians 1:1-2 Print this Bible Study
** 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?
** 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.
** As we approach this treasure we hold in our hands, what do you suppose is our greatest prayerful need?
