only possible through Christ. How are we “justified” (“just Read Ephesians 3:1–13

Paul uses the word to mean something that could only be known

by special revelation (v. 5). Paul saw it as an act of God’s grace (an
undeserved favor) to have the opportunity to share this mystery
with the Gentiles, and it was worth any amount of suffering.
Compare with Ephesians 2:8–9.

Apart from the comedic element, that’s pretty much what
Paul tells us to do in Ephesians. He says, “Walk this way” and then

Jesus Christ.
Page through this letter and you’ll start to see it. Chapter 1
outlines what Christ has done for us, enabling us to “walk this way.”
We once walked in sin (2:1) but we’ve been made alive, created in
Christ Jesus for good works that we “might walk in them” (2:10).
We are urged to “walk ... worthy of the calling” (4:1), and he
describes what that looks like (4:2–3). We’re no longer to walk in
futility like those who don’t know Christ (4:17) but to walk with a
renewed mind (4:23–32) which influences our hearts, attitudes and
actions.
As we get into Ephesians 5, Paul offers some further advice.
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk
in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant
offering and sacrifice to God” (5:1–2). We’re to walk as imitators
of God and mimic how He operates, just as a child copies his
parents or the actors followed the comic’s lead. Our model is Jesus
the Son, who lived out the love of God for all to see. In John 13,
Jesus talked about this new way to walk, to be His disciples, as a
command to be fulfilled. “A new commandment I give to you, that
you love one another: even as I have loved you, you are also to love
one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another” (John 13:34–35).
This is discipleship, the walk of love which follows the
