In him (Jesus) and through faith in him (Jesus) we may approach God with freedom and confidence.   (Ephesians 3:12, NIV, (Jesus) added)

 

EPHESIANS 1-3

DAY 163 JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verse For Today: Ephesians 3:12

Today we begin our journey through the letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the people of Ephesus: Ephesians. The apostle explains that Jew and Gentile exist no more: we are one in Christ Jesus.

 

Ask God for His understanding of Ephesians 1-3. Read Ephesians 1-3. Let’s journey!

 

Chapters 1-3 of the book of Ephesians explains many important points. We are saved by faith in Jesus and not through works. (Keeping the law) He explains that when Jesus overcame death, the punishment for sin, that Jew and Gentile no longer exist. We are one in Christ. (Ephesians 1:1-3:21)

 

Our focus verses today:

 

In him (Jesus) and through faith in him (Jesus) we may approach God with freedom and confidence.   (Ephesians 3:12, NIV, (Jesus) added)

 

Once Jesus finished His ministry on earth believers no longer needed to go to the priest to have his petitions presented to God. Jesus taught believers to pray in His name. Believers are now speaking directly to God! The temple veil was torn as Jesus breathed His last breath on the cross. Jesus was now available to Gentile and Jew alike. A believers relationship with God shifted, it was no longer communication with a priest, it was communication with the Lord Himself: Jesus.
