1 Paul an Apostle of Iesus Christ by the will of God, to the Saincts which are at Ephesus, and to the faithfull in Christ Iesus.

2 Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Iesus Christ, who hath blessed vs with all spirituall blessings in heauenly places in Christ:

4 According as he hath chosen vs in him, before the foundation of the world, that wee should bee holy, and without blame before him in loue:

5 Hauing predestinated vs vnto the adoption of children by Iesus Christ to himselfe, according to the good pleasure of his will:

6 To the praise of the glorie of his grace, wherein he hath made vs accepted in the beloued:

7 In whom wee haue redemption through his blood, the forgiuenesse of sinnes, according to the riches of his grace,

8 Wherein hee hath abounded toward vs in all wisedome and prudence:

9 Hauing made knowen vnto vs the mysterie of his will, according to his good pleasure, which he had purposed in himselfe,

10 That in the dispensation of the fulnesse of times, he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heauen, and which are on earth, euen in him:

11 In whom also we haue obteined an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsell of his owne will:

12 That we should be to the praise of his glorie, who first trusted in Christ.

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of trueth, the Gospel of your saluation: in whom also after that yee beleeued, yee were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance, vntill the redemption of the purchased possession, vnto the praise of his glorie.

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Iesus, and loue vnto all the Saints,

16 Cease not to giue thankes for you, making mention of you in my prayers,

17 That the God of our Lord Iesus Christ the Father of glorie, may giue vnto you the Spirit of wisedome and reuelation in the knowledge of him:

18 The eyes of your vnderstanding being inlightned: that yee may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glorie of his inheritance in the Saints:

19 And what is the exceeding greatnesse of his power to vs-ward who beleeue, according to the working of his mightie power:

20 Which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his owne right hand in the heauenly places,

21 Farre aboue all principalitie, and power, and might, and dominion, and euery name that is named, not onely in this world, but also in that which is to come:

22 And hath put all things vnder his feete, and gaue him to be the head ouer all things to the Church,

23 Which is his body, the fulnesse of him that filleth all in all.

I want to know my purpose and so I can do it now, at age 57 so I can have a satisfactory in my life, with all my problems, so God can work them out thru me or for when in his will for my life.

thank GOD for JESUS who forgives and set the captives free praise the for the spiritual blessings HE has given us a chance for everlasting life.


Motdaugrnds's Ephesians Chapter 1 comment on 1/31/2015, 8:03am...

I love this chapter in that it sets forth who we are in Christ Jesus and gives knowledge as to how very much we humans are loved. With Jesus ' having risen and now abiding in the heavenly sanctuary ever making intercession for us via our prayers and with the Holy Spirit still enduring the woes of this difficult world, we have access to the omnipotent Father as any child would have access to a loving father. Knowing who we are "in Christ " and what we can do "in Christ " and "accepting " the will of our Heavenly Father for us gives strength to win whatever battles that come before us while here on earth.


Dewey's Ephesians Chapter 1 comment on 1/14/2015, 3:38pm...

Amen Lilian, and concerning your last verse I second that emotion!


Tracy schmidt's Ephesians Chapter 1 comment about verse 23 on 1/14/2015, 3:31pm...

Have faith in Christ now and know at this point u are who u are created to be now. The spiritual gifts of the heavens dwell in you because God can't lie. Nothing this world has to offer can compare to what God has for u in this temporary realm or the eternal. For Christ Jesus is all in all and your purpose in Him brings u the power to overcome and the joy and satisfaction of being one with your Creator, while fulfilling the will you was created for. Having the peace of knowing if the rapture comes or your heart stops beating, you are going home to heaven . Ephesians from a God that can not lie garanteing who we are in the Father through Christ Jesus. Victory is ours, no matter what. Jesus died to make it so and lives again to see it carried out. If you dont believe me read Ephesians one. We are living in a day, u better start believing and applying Gods Word because forever is a long time and your going somewhere! God is His Word.


Lilian's Ephesians Chapter 1 comment on 1/12/2015, 1:48am...

Jesus is the only way the truth and the life no man comes to the father except thru Jesus. He who believes in him will love him and keep his word. Praying to Jesus is the key and a gateway to reach our Father as Jesus prayed to the Father on behalf of us... What a loving Jesus a perfect obedience to the Father... I love you Jesus


Robert's Ephesians Chapter 1 comment on 12/23/2014, 8:12am...

God in Christ are in one accord as Jesus and his children are in one accord. As Jesus asked in prayer for himself, and he asked in prayer for us, Jesus is our way into heaven, God was the way into heaven for Jesus.
