In Ephesians we are brought face to face with God. In the very first verse and throughout the first chapter we are confronted with the glory of God in His eternal plan - the mystery of His will - to redeem a people for Himself. The mystery of God's will is devised in the counsel of His will according to the good pleasure of His will. God is behind all of the events of history for the praise of His glory and to redeem His people out of the world.
The Mystery of His Will

Ephesians 2:1-10 • May 19, 2019 • Pastor Paul Edwards
Paul finishes chapter one focusing on the exceeding greatness of God's power which raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at God's right hand. The conjunctive phrase "And you..." which begins chapter two connects all that is true of Christ at the end of chapter one with all that is true of believers in chapter 2.
