Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learned from Ephesians  

(Truth Part – Ephesian 1:1 – 4:16)

Compiled by Jamsco

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.··· Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places ···  He chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him ··· In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will ··· In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace ··· God  put all things under Jesus’s feet and gave him as head over all things to the church ··· You were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience ··· But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ ··· By grace you have been saved through faith and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. ··· We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them ···  Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. ··· He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near ··· You are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord  ··· To him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. ··· There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. ··· Grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift ··· He gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ. ··· Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,  from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
