Key People: Paul, Church at Ephesus
Summary: Ephesians was written to encourage the believers at Ephesus. Paul reminded them that they are saved by grace through faith as a free gift from God. This gift of salvation in Christ includes wisdom, hope, understanding, and an eternal inheritance. God brings all believers together under one head—Jesus Christ. They are all adopted as sons and daughters of God and joined together as Jesus’ church. Paul then gave practical ways that the lives of all believers should reflect the reality of this amazing truth as they serve one another in the church, in their homes, and in the world.
About Jesus: In Jesus Christ, we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace.
