We all need a place where we belong. Paul had something to say about this to the first-century followers of Jesus in Ephesus. And his message can serve as a reminder to us about what it really means to be a part of God’s family.
By showing both grace and mercy, Jesus created the opportunity for unity between God and humankind. As a reflection of that, our call is to demonstrate unity as well.
Paul gives practical and specific instructions on how to live as Jesus followers. Everything he instructed the Ephesians to do lined up with what Jesus modeled and taught: we should honor other people.
