The Truth: The Book of EphesiansThe Book of Ephesians teaches us about GOD'S grace, mercy and love that He hastoward us. It teaches us about our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ sincewe've put our faith in Him. This book gives instruction to all born again believers inJesus Christ as how our new life should be one of pure and honest living both in thechurch and in our homes.
The Book of Ephesians written by the hand of the Apostle Paul and inspired by the HolySpirit around AD 62, toward the end of Paul's life, is a book that clearly teaches us aboutGOD'S grace, mercy and love toward us. There is no other book in the whole Holy Biblein my opinion that does a better job in teaching us about GOD'S Grace and Love that Hehas made available to everyone whether or not a person chooses to believe and follow theLord Jesus Christ or not. GOD made the impossible possible to a world of fallen sinnersto be redeemed and reconciled to GOD through GOD'S only begotten Son Jesus Christand the Precious Blood that Jesus shed on the Cross, so that anyone who will believe and put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ can be forgiven for their sins and have eternal lifewith GOD.This offer is made available to anyone...Anyone at all, who will just humble themselvesand confess they are a sinner who needs a Savior in Jesus Christ, so that they will not goto Hell and perish, but instead will have been forgiven and reconciled unto to GOD andeternal life be given to them. This is a free gift of GOD to us-ward...we need to donothing but accept it...believe that GOD'S Word holds true and that Jesus Christ did payfor our sins with His Precious Blood that He shed for us on the Cross of Calvary.
Ephesians 2:7-9
 
7
"That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in hiskindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9
 Not of works, lest any man should boast." Now, lets all read together the first chapter of The Book of Ephesians which makes it perfectly clear the grace of GOD toward us in Christ Jesus. And, makes it known to us allof whom Jesus is in relationship to the Heavenly Father and whom Jesus is to all that believes in Him as the only Lord and GOD that has the power to forgive us our sins andredeem us by his own power and unto His glory.
Ephesians 1:1-23
 1 "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus,and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
 
2
Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with allspiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that weshould be holy and without blame before him in love:
5
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,according to the good pleasure of his will,
6
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
7
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according tothe riches of his grace;
8
Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9
Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasurewhich he hath purposed in himself:
10
That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one allthings in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12
That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of  promise,
14
Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
15
Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all thesaints,
16
Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spiritof wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hopeof his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
 
19
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according tothe working of his mighty power,
20
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his ownright hand in the heavenly places,
21
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that isnamed, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22
And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to thechurch,
23
Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." Now please continue reading the rest of The Book of Ephesians to continue learningabout the Lord Jesus Christ and His great love toward you and all of us. Next to TheBook of John, the Book of Ephesians does a beautiful job teaching us all about the greatlove that GOD loves us with and His grace, mercy and compassion which GOD hasshown towards us even through none of us deserve it, but GOD loves us so much that Hedid the following for us...to save us from sin, the second death, Hell and the Lake of Firewhere all of us sinners really deserve to be, because the "wages of sin is death" (Romans6:23), but GOD has made it possible for anyone who will repent and just believe thatJesus Christ, the only begotten SON of GOD, paid for our sins on the Cross of Calvarywith the shedding of His own Precious Blood, was buried and was raised from the deadin order to save us (the world) from sin, the second death, Hell and the Lake of Fire - to be saved through Jesus Christ, by Jesus Christ and for Jesus Christ unto eternal life withGOD.
Romans 6:20-23
 
20
"For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
21
What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit untoholiness, and the end everlasting life.
23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
John 3:16-18
 
16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever  believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
