Paul's letter to the Ephesians provides us with a higher perspective—a new vision of our purpose and calling as the body of Christ and how we are to live it out.
Becoming a People of Grace: An Exposition of Ephesians
Jesus died and rose again to do more than just get you to heaven.
God has plans for you today…plans He prepared in advance for you.
Chuck Swindoll’s practical study of the book of Ephesians reminds us that we were not saved by good works…but for them. God’s grace can transform our thinking, our prejudices, our marriages and families, our jobs—and our incessant spiritual and emotional battles. Jesus died and rose for our salvation—yes—and that we might become a people of grace.
God designed the Scriptures to nourish us and to penetrate every cell of our souls. He wants the words to fill us and become part of our deepest being. The book of Ephesians is no exception.
In this message Chuck zeroes in on some of the unseen spiritual blessings believers in Christ possess to help us to deal with the tough things we all face.
Praying is usually one of the last disciplines we master. Have you found that true in your life?
The might that created Niagara Falls, that showered the earth with dazzling oceans, and that rolled the stone away from the tomb is at our disposal.
Because of God's work on our behalf, Christians now have the hope of redemption by grace through faith.
Good works stand as a testimony to the saving work God has already done in our lives.
Jesus has brought peace between God and people by breaking down the barrier between us.
Because Christ brought peace, we now have access to God through Him, joining other believers as part of His family on earth.
Paul's example and his message provide reason for us to feel secure in God's hands, that we might not suffer discouragement before Him.
The Apostle Paul prayed to God on the Ephesians' behalf that they would be filled with the love of Christ and the strength of His Spirit.
In these verses the Apostle Paul teaches believers how to apply the great truths of God's sovereignty and salvation in day-to-day life.
We need to remember that God's power in the resurrection also works in us, and we need only to access His power through the gifts He gives us by His Spirit.
We need an infusion of healthy thinking that will bring us together, so that we can work together as one for our common purpose of bringing glory to God.
Chuck Swindoll examines the teaching of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:17-24.
Old habits are so hard to break, and often we have no desire to break them either. However, God's saving grace provides us freedom.
Belief and behaviour always go hand in hand—in that order.
The Apostle Paul wanted us to imitate God by imitating God's Son, a point Paul elaborates further in this Ephesians 5:6-14.
The Apostle Paul offers five foundational actions that bring us back to the basics of what it means to follow Christ.
Ephesians 5:22-6:9 presents unfamiliar, often unexplored territory in the oceans of marriage.
People don't always give marriage the time it needs to grow and mature. Instead, we give up on the pattern God instituted and look for quick fixes and easy outs. Paul reminds us that there is a better way.
