The Book Of Ephesians


Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is one of the most encouraging letters he wrote, which is full of deep spiritual truths and a major source of rich blessings for the Christian today.

Within it, he reminds us that all Christians are united with Christ, no matter our gender, our race or our backgrounds. The law of Moses couldn’t and can’t save anyone from their sins, we’re all saved by the grace of God, if we remain in Christ.

The history of Christianity at Ephesus began around A.D. 50, perhaps as a result of the efforts of Priscilla and Aquila. Paul came to Ephesus in about A.D. 52, establishing the church and stayed there for at least three years.

It was during that time that Paul wrote 1 Corinthians and was faced with many opportunities to share the Gospel but also faced many problems. Complete Study Of The Book Of Ephesians

Chapter By Chapter

In Christ we find every blessing, in Him we are blessed abundantly. You cannot be half in Christ, your either in or out, if you’re in Christ you have every blessing. He gives blessings and we are at war in the spiritual realms.

It doesn’t matter where you live, but what matters is where we are spiritually. It’s not a physical location, it’s our spiritual address and everybody has a spiritual address, our address is in Christ. Ephesians 1

This chapter begins by Paul reminding us of four things, we were spiritually death, we were subject to Satan, we were bound by fleshly passions and we were under condemnation.

Paul then goes on to describe what God has now done for us, He made us alive together with Christ, He raised us up with Him, He has placed us in the heavenly places and seated us with Him and He will show the riches of His grace. Ephesians 2

After describing himself as a servant of the Lord and the worst sinner who ever lived, Paul goes on to speak about the glorious mystery of how the Gentiles are now a part of the Lord’s church.

He tells us that God has a warehouse of goodies that never will be out of stock, He has unlimited riches and can give unlimited blessing. He encourages us to use God’s power to help us live right, which in turn brings glory to God. Ephesians 3

This chapter begins by Paul urging the reader to live a Christian life, to behave worthy of Christ. Off with the old and on with the new he says.

When we come to Jesus, we change our name to Christian, and our lives should reflect that name change. To live a life worthy of His name is living according to the Scriptures. Ephesians 4

Paul begins this chapter by reminding Christians how they should live, and where they should live. He speaks about how the Holy Spirit will help us live our lives in accordance with God’s will and how we should worship God in accordance to God’s will.

He then goes on to describe how family life should be, the relationship between the husband and the wife and how this relates to Christ and His church. Ephesians 5

Paul continues with his teachings concerning relationships, he begins with the relationship between and their parents, he then goes on to speak about the relationship between the slave and their masters.

Finally he speaks about the spiritual warfare Christians are engaged in. He reminds us that we must put on the full armour of God, we must use our spiritual armour to fight in a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6


"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

Philippians 4:6
