Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
The book of Ephesians has once been called the Holy of Holies of all Scripture. It touches into the heavenly realm and glimpses the likeness of the glory of God. It reaches beyond man’s creative vision and peeps into the mind of the Creator. It sweeps the imagination into the far reaches of the star-spangled universe of God, and it trolls the depth of the heart of God’s love in the face of His beloved Son. It gives occasional flashes of the depths of the riches of the glory of God, in Christ. It is the epistle of God to His children – in its most sublime and majestic meaning.
God could not expose His gift of grace more than what is captured in these pages. God could not shower His heart of love more abundantly over sinners saved by grace. This is a word from God that should refresh the weary soul and ease troubled hearts. This is a communication from God, dripping with exquisite beauty and intense joy. This is an epistle that should permeate the warp and woof of our forgiven souls.
He picks up sinners from earth’s miry clay and forms a new vessel for His pleasure. He transforms a filthy, broken, sinful soul – into a glorious, supernatural creation. He changes a sinner of Adam’s old creation – into a saintly new-creation in Christ. He opens up mysteries of God that lie secretly hidden in the Psalm and Prophets.
He revealed the Church as Body of its Saviour and Lord – His creative workmanship. He disclosed the plan of God in the fullness of Christ – that He should be all in all. He unveiled the household of God as the habitation of God – one-new man in Him. He presented a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle – His purchased possession. He exposed the principalities and powers of evil in high places – the wiles of the devil.
God’s majesty, might, and matchless grace is displayed for all who will look and live. His eternal plans, which He purposed in Christ, is mapped out for all who have eyes. His sovereign work, and the Lord’s good pleasure, is strewn from beginning to end. His purpose and plan, grace and glory, might and majesty streams through its pages. He equips us for our heavenly calling, earthly conduct and the satanic conflict. He floods us to the fullness of His good pleasure for we are the fullness of Christ. He fills our laps with good things and anoints us with heavenly blessings and favour.
The book of Ephesians must be the pinnacle of faith, hope and love for the believer. The book of Ephesians has rightly been called the Holiest of all Holy Scripture, and we would do well to read its content; reflect on its glory and rely on its truth – for it reaches beyond man’s creative vision and peeps into the mind of the Creator. It touches into the heavenly realms and glimpses the likeness of the glory of God. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Ephesians 1:3
