What does Paul mean when he says, "to walk (lead a life) worthy of the divine] calling to which you have been called"? God says to the readers of Ephesians and to each of us, "Here, my child. This is your identity, your position; stand in your rights "
Paul's great letter to the church located in a city full of idols and paganism is quite appropriate for study in our day. It could be called Paul's masterpiece because of its depth and vastness. Ephesians could be considered a theology course for every believer, or perhaps a treatise on the church. Paul desires every reader to mature in faith, love, character, and revelation. He celebrates in a basic theme of redemption by God and describes how the redeemed person should live. Paul's revelation on many subjects is our Scripture and guide for life.
He expounds on:
- existence in Christ;
- the spiritual blessings of every believer;
- the role of The Holy Spirit in the Christian's life;
- the transformation of grace;
- election, predestination and adoption of God's children;
- redemption through Christ's blood;
- family life; and
- spiritual warfare and God's mighty armor.
I encourage you to make a journey with me through Ephesians. I believe it will change your life.
