Welcome to our ESM study on Ephesians.
As we spend time looking through the 6 chapters that make up this Epistle of Paul’s, my prayer is that you will begin to see how the message of Paul to a people nearly 2000 years ago, can apply to you today. Here we find words spoken to a newer community of faith that has birthed since Jesus Christ died. Though these words are spoken to a people and place far removed from us, the topics they cover and application to our lives today are timeless. The words of scripture are timeless and are perfect for giving direction on how to live out our faith. For all of scripture, from the Old Testament to the New Testament “is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim 3:16-17)
My prayer is as you look into the book of Ephesians, you will find God speaking to you and you will find application for your own life as well as those in your cell group and our family of faith here at OCAC.in Christ, Pastor David
