Tweeting Through Ephesians

Introduction: The book of Ephesians, which has been called the queen of the Pauline epistles, is the Apostle Paul’s unveiling of the church as the mystery and eternal purpose of God.

Ephesians 1:4 — The Christian’s choice of Christ on the day of salvation is a consequence of Christ’s prior choice of the Christian before the days of creation.

Ephesians 1:6 — How grateful I am that my acceptance with God is based on His beloved Son and not my sinless behavior.

Ephesians 1:6 — We are not accepted by God because of who we are and what we do, but only because of who Jesus is and what He has done for us, which we could have never done for ourselves.

Ephesians 1:10 — It is Jesus Christ who makes the universe a cosmos rather than a chaos, since it is sustained by Him and summed up in Him.

Ephesians 1:18 — Christ’s glorious inheritance will be a glorified church and the saints who comprise it will forever serve as His chosen possession.

Ephesians 2:8-9 — Salvation has nothing to do with our goodness, but everything to do with God’s grace.

Ephesians 2:8-9 — Salvation is not earned by our good works for God, but graciously given by God to all who believe in the sufficiency of Christ’s atoning work for us.

Ephesians 5:15 — To sidestep Satan’s snares the saints must watch their step. We must walk wisely; that is, circumspectly, carefully watching every step we take.

Ephesians 5:20 — Christianity calls for more than an annual day of Thanksgiving; it calls for daily "thanksliving."

Ephesians 6:10-13 — It is imperative that we stand our ground under the onslaught of Satan and while awaiting divine orders. To fall back in cowardice or to march forward without command is to assure our spiritual defeat.

Ephesians 6:18 — For you to pray in the Spirit is for the Spirit to pray through you.
