Ephesians

What Will You Bring to the Fight? Part 2

Paul gives his final big topic to the Ephesians as he focuses on the spiritual battle that is raging all around us even today. Satan, his demons, and the world is trying to trap Christians into giving into sin and abandoning the faith. Paul teaches that this battle cannot be won by us. Christians are completely outgunned, yet the victory can be won through Christ and the power He gives to those who follow Him. This power is known as the armor of God. Ephesians 6:14-20

Slavery, Employment & The Gospel

Paul turns his focus from living the Gospel through righteousness in the home to how Christians are to live within the issue of slavery. Slavery is something many falsely consider the Bible silent on, but there is much to be discussed on how God views slavery. Since slavery is not in our immediate context, the application is made to how Christians are to work for their employers and how employers are to treat their workers. Ephesians 6:5-9

Gospel Centered Parenting

Paul's emphasis on righteous living within the home extends to the relationship between children and their parents and also parents with their children. Paul tells the Ephesians that children are to both obey and honor, while parents and fathers specifically are to encourage their children in the Lord. Ephesians 6:1-4

The Mystery of Marriage

Paul has discussed how to live righteously in the church, in the home, and now we shows the Ephesians how to live righteously in the home. Paul shows that Christ is the standard of marriage, the sustainer of marriage, and the purpose of marriage. Ephesians 5:22-33.

A Unified Body in Christ

We continue our series in Ephesians: A Christian Life by looking at how the body of the church is to fit together with its Head - Jesus Christ. As we mature as believers, we become more unified through the Gospel thus fulfilling our purpose of loving one another. Ephesians 4:7-16

Unity & Baptism

Returning to the book of Ephesians, we find ourselves in chapter 4. Here, Paul is pleading with the Ephesians church to walk worthy of their calling and remain united. This unity does not come easily, it requires hard work and effort. Ephesians 4:1-6

Experiencing God

Continuing our series in Ephesians - A Christian Life, we find ourselves in another prayer from Paul. Paul is asking God for the Ephesians to be able to truly experience God. What does this mean to experience God? What does it look like? In a world fascinated with feelings and experience, God's Word alone provides the answers.  Ephesians 3:14-21
