If ever there were a letter about how to love your fellow church members, it is this eloquent missive to the Christians in Ephesus.
The author of the book of Ephesians, who refers to Church as “the body of Christ” and to Christ as its head, presents the case for uniting to fulfill Christ’s greatest teaching: to love one another.
You will learn from this talk about the Christian way of life, about the new man, about putting on the armor of God—and even about why today’s ecumenical movement looks to this book for guidance.
Consider this request by the letter’s author: “I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:1–3).
It should be mentioned that, though the book of Ephesians is attributed to Paul, it was probably written toward the end of the 1st century, after Paul’s martyrdom.
