We continue in our study of the book of Ephesians. I have been saying that the main theme of the book of Ephesians is the glory of God displayed in the church for all to see. This is described clearly in Ephesians 3:1-13. The text is a digression in which Paul explains how his imprisonment is consistent with all that he has said about the work of Christ and the sovereign grace of God. Whatever obstacles you face in this world, you need to Keep Your Eyes Fixed on the Spiritual Reality. We will consider these four points:
- Paul’s place in this spiritual reality.
- The mystery being revealed through his ministry.
- The goal and effect of it.
- Application to us today.
