Paul wrote a ton of incredible letters that helped form and disciple the early church. It’s incredible to me how in tune Paul was with the Holy Spirit that the knowledge he shared continues to be so relevant, practical, and impossibly wise today. I guess that’s why we revere it as part of the God-breathed Holy Scriptures we use today to form our faith. One of my favorite letters is Ephesians and we’ll be exploring it over the coming weeks. Paul wrote this letter to the church in Ephesus which he helped plant. He begins his letter by sharing the incredible grace of God that unifies us all as the family of Christ. This incredible message fulfills the promise God made to Abraham way back in Genesis 12! How awesome is that? After encouraging us Paul moves on to give us a few specific challenges in relation to this unity we have under Christ that inspires us to become more like Christ and to uphold our commitments and responsibilities. He ends the letter with the incredible metaphor we know so well as “The Armor of God” I’m looking forward to exploring this book with you and seeing how Paul describes and shares the Gospel and shows how it should change our lives!
