Having taken up the important subjects of the foundation truths of our salvation (Romans), correcting worldliness among believers (Corinthians), and correcting bad doctrine with the truth (Galatians), the Spirit of God now gives us the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesian believers. This epistle contains the “highest” truth concerning the blessings that belong to believers in Christ in glory. Paul unfolds, by the Spirit’s inspiration, the wonderful truths concerning the body of Christ (all believers in this world) and their association with their Head, the Lord Jesus, in glory. Ephesians ends with the most practical kinds of instruction concerning the various relationships of life and the armor that Christians are to wear in their battle with the powers of darkness.
