Ephesians Study 2

Study 2: Praise God for His Plan
Ephesians 1: 1-14

Why do you think Christians lose their excitement about the Gospel?

What does this passage reveal about God’s ultimate purpose?

How can we see the entire Godhead (Father, Son and Spirit) at work to fulfil that purpose?

What are some of the blessings that flow to us as a result of what God is doing?

What does Paul mean when he says that we are blessed in the “heavenly realms”?

Why is there so much emphasis on God’s sovereignty and control in this passage?

Predestination plagues many Christians rather than blesses them. Why does Paul believe we should feel strengthened and encouraged by the idea of predestination?

Recap on the context: What are the challenges that are facing the Ephesian church?

Why did Paul want the Ephesians to know God’s purposes?

How should this passage change the way that we…

  • think about our Christian lives?
  • feel about our relationship with God?
  • live out our lives day to day?
