The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament - EphesiansISBN: 9781601785411
"This promises to be a great resource for churches seeking to know the Word of God more fully." - Carl R. Trueman
In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul elaborates on, in a most wonderful way, the God-given, Christ-secured, Holy Spirit-applied privileges of the Christian life. Here, perhaps more than anywhere else in the New Testament, we are brought face to face with the "unsearchable riches of Christ" (3:8). Step by adoring step, Paul introduces us to the spiritual blessings that are the predestined, blood-bought privileges of all who have put their self-abandoning trust in Jesus Christ. His letter to the Ephesians is a spiritual Mount Everest, turning us away from ourselves and placing the spotlight of God's great salvation wholly on Christ.
