In late June we will begin an extensive study of the letter of Ephesians. The Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus while in prison at Rome (cf. Eph. 3:1; 4:1; 6:20). Three major themes stand out in the letter – the Wealth of the Church (Eph. 1:3-3:21), the Walkof the Church (Eph. 4:1-6:9) and the Warfare of the Church (Eph. 6:10-24). Paul’s primary purpose in writing the letter was to encourage the church to walk in the spirit of oneness and unity. I pray that God will bless us as we study Ephesians together.
The Pursuit: Chasing Answers to Life’s Questions will remind us what life is really like when we choose the pattern of this world rather than what God has to give; help us develop an everyday theology, showing us how to shape a Christian worldview in light of the challenges of secularism; serve as a guide for us as we seek to learn how to engage culture in an effective way; and enable us to see afresh our need for the gospel of Jesus Christ. “Can meaning in life come from outside of a God-centered universe?” Ecclesiastes may well be the most contemporary book in the Bible, speaking to the very people who are most likely to build their lives on success, wealth, power, and intellectual reputation. Repeatedly, the book points out the futility of such a way of life, urging instead that readers face their need for God.
Helping people become fully committed followers of Christ!
