“Preaching for Exaltation and Change: Starting the New Year 2018 in Ephesians”
As God continues to lead and shape my preaching and teaching ministry at Jesus Center Community Church, beginning in January 2018, I will begin a new series on Paul’s beloved letter to the Ephesians. Ephesians is a fascinating book full of deep theological insights and practical lessons for the Christian life and biblical discipleship.
The content of Ephesians is rich as it addresses the important issues of God’s mediating grace in salvation and the practical consequences of the Christian life, the imperative of (Christian) unity and reconciliation, the relationship between Christ’s followers and the social order, instructions on how to live together in love and understanding, instructions concerning the Christian family and about the relationships between the Christian husband and the Christian wife, etc.
We will walk through this Pauline book verse by verse and chapter by chapter. My estimation is that it will take me three to four months to preach through this book, exegetically and expositorily.
As a result, I have acquired some additional texts and commentaries on Ephesians to help me get a better understanding of the Book.
I covet your prayers before the Lord.
Grace and Peace,
