Show Notes

The apostle Paul, writing from a Roman prison, intended that all who long for Christlike maturity would receive this writing – this letter that he composed for the believers in the city of Ephesus, in Asia Minor. Enclosed within the Book of Ephesians is the discipline needed to develop into true children of God. Furthermore, a study in Ephesians will help to fortify and to establish the believer so he can fulfill the purpose and calling God has given. The aim of this epistle is to confirm and to equip a maturing church. Part of that maturing is understanding and applying the ten guidelines for abundant living.

Episode 287: Live as Exiles

In 2 Peter 2:11, the writer describes Christians as “sojourners,” “pilgrims,” “aliens,” “exiles,” “strangers.” We are citizens of heaven.
