The Book of Ephesians: "God's Eternal Purpose" - Ephesians 3:11-21
Manage episode 352569754 series 3283288
What God planned from the time before time existed—his eternal purpose—has come into fruition through Jesus Christ—his cross, resurrection, and ascension.
God’s eternal purpose centers on Christ and His church. If we want our lives to count for eternity, we’ve got to get God’s vision and purpose for the church and live accordingly.
For 3 chapters Paul has spoken truth about the church and her role. It’s the groundwork for where he turns next: how we as members of the church are to live and be. He ends this section with a beautiful doxology, a song of praise to God who has done the most tremendous things up to this point.
When you think of God’s plan for the church and what it would become it was beyond imagination. It was something no one with the greatest of wisdom could have thought possible. Only God is able to bring about such works beyond anything imaginable.
