Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Ephesians - The Church - A Mystery Revealed Category: The Church Scripture: Ephesians 1:1

Ephesians 1:1

In the introduction of Ephesians, Paul emphasizes three extraordinary realities about God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord has always sovereignly chosen:

1. His Pioneer (1:1a)
2. His People (1:1b)
3. His Plan (1:1b)

"If the Epistle to the Romans is the purest expression of the Gospel, the Epistle to the Ephesians is the sublimest and the most majestic expression of it."
- Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones
