The Book of Ephesians tells us about a mystery kept secret since the foundation of the world. The book is about learning “what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ” (Eph. 3:9).
The book reveals a life of strength and a life of wisdom and a life of power and a life of victory in a troubled world. Successful living depends on following God’s instructions for life. The Book of Ephesians reveals God’s instructions on:
Our Spiritual Blessings in Him
Election and Predestination
Dispensation of the Fullness of Times
Unity of the Church in Christ
Doctrinal Truth and Purity
Unity of Love in the Church
Moral living in a Dark World
The Filling of the Spirit
What is Christian Music?
Marriage: a Picture of the Church
Children and Fathers
The Warfare of the Church
The Book of Ephesians is also the greatest book in the New Testament on the doctrine of the church. It reveals the spiritual nature of the church as well as an emphasis on the doctrinal, love, and moral unity of the church. It deals with false doctrine about the church, salvation, and what God is doing in this dispensation. It gives you a foundation for living a successful Christian life. With this book, you may partake with Paul in the fellowship of the mystery.
