The way to transform and affect our culture is from the inside out. Paul commands us to live our lives in relationship with one another "as to Christ", or "according to" Christ, which means living in a manner that is reflective of Jesus - His will, His way. Living as Jesus lives is the only way to transform all the basic relationships of life.

There’s a lot of confusion around the idea of submission in the New Testament. In Ephesians 5, Paul describes what it looks like to live as Christians in the context of marriage and he points to submission as the default position for both husbands and wives. In addition Paul declares that marriage is about way more than we think.

In the book of Ephesians, Paul opens up by declaring who we are, what we believe, and how we should live. And in Ephesians 5, Paul calls us to live as the Christians we are, light in a dark world. In this teaching, we’ll explore what that looks like in practice.

By faith we enter into knowing the truth and grace of Christ, rooted and grounded in His love. And by faith we are called to live the life of Jesus, speaking truth in love, offering grace to all who are in need, and forgiving one another as God in Christ forgives us. This is to be our manner and our way of living, mature and united in Christ.

In Ephesians 4, Paul reminds us of who we are in Christ and then informs us that we’re all spiritually immature. How do we live in light of the fact that we’ve got a long way to go when it comes to maturity and what practices will take us in the right direction?

The first three chapters of Ephesians talks a lot about why we do what we do as the people of God. In Christ we are one new humanity, created to bring God glory. How do we live out this purpose - this why - in our lives and in the church?

Ephesians 3

The new life we have in Christ by and through His grace breaks down all the barriers we construct that separates us from one another. In Christ we realize, amidst all of our differences, reconciliation and peace. All the dividing walls are broken down, leaving us as one household, united in Spirit, fellow citizens in the Kingdom of God.

Ephesians 2:11-22

Paul makes it plain and clear that we were not so much in need of more information, but rather in need of reminders about what we already know. Paul reminds us of three things: we were sinners and lived completely apart from God, we are now saved only by God's love, mercy, and grace in Christ, and we are by His grace recreated to do good for those around us.

Ephesians 2:1-10

Everyday Christians are saints. Paul wants the saints to really know God, not just know about God. He prays the saints would have 3 things demonstrated by Jesus' resurrection and ascension: the hope of God's calling, the riches of our inheritance, and God's power.

Ephesians 1:15-23
