When we begin to understand Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians, something wonderful happens to our spiritual life. Realizing how rich we are in Christ, we become filled with thankfulness and joy. We never envy non–Christians again. We see what it means to live as a Christian in today’s world. We become stable in our doctrinal understanding. In short, Ephesians produces exactly the sort of Christians we most need.
That is why this short commentary has been written. It is for those who want to begin to understand Paul’s great letter. More advanced believers will find spiritual refreshment here. May a fresh reading of Ephesians help all of us to ‘grow up in all things into him who is the head – Christ’! (Eph. 4:15).
