We continue in the second chapter of Ephesians. After considering God’s new creation in the salvation of sinners (vv. 1-10) and considering that true unity is in Christ alone (vv. 11-18), I want to return to verse 17 and consider what is implied in this one verse. Here we see the significance of gospel preaching today. We will ask three questions of this verse:
- Who came and preached to them?
- What did that look like & what was the content of that preaching?
- What encouragement and application is there for the church today?
