I’m really excited to hit the practical part of this study. Not that the first three chapters of Ephesians aren’t at all practical—surely, knowing that I have “confident access” to God in Christ motivates me to run to the throne of grace. And that’s practical! But the first half of Ephesians is heavy on doctrine and understanding our faith . . . while the second half tells us how to walk that out.
Now it gets practical practical, as Paul gives us specifics about how to live. How to think. How to treat people. And how to grow. I love his emphasis on the body of Christ. We are members of one another. God created this body such that we need one another. And in a very real way, we see that right here on the blog. Week after week, I see you all “walking worthy” as you build up one another. It’s truly beautiful to behold.
