Brother or sister in Christ, we are in a privileged position. We can now comprehend by His grace something that was for ages shrouded in mystery. This was a "plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth (1:9-10)." This was God's intention to redeem a people through Christ who would be united with Him. This was God's goal to create for Himself a bride that would be comprised of every tribe and tongue and nation. Ephesians is one of the most beautiful and most theologically rich books in the New Testament. We'll explore together how, in Christ, the Lord gives us a new identity and a new family.
February 14: United (Ephesians 1:1-2)
