People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:15


Eph 1:15 After I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus. This verse has been thought to show that Paul was not personally acquainted with those to whom he wrote, and hence that this letter could not be addressed to the Ephesians; but he used similar language of Philemon, one of his own converts. See Phm 1:5. The language is natural if Paul left Ephesus in the spring of A.D. 57, and wrote this letter about the close of A.D. 62 (Conybeare and Howson), more than five years after. During this period he could only know of the faith and love of the Ephesians by what he heard.

    There's only one God an that is the lords Jesus Christ

    Jesus thinks very low of the Pharisees, very very low of them. He actually just thinks that they can't read and love death.

    In such a time like this, we need God's Grace to sustain us and we need His Peace in our lives on a daily basis. The enemy is very busy. He is attacking me right now through my oldest daughter and granddaughter as the Word said this would happen on the Last and Evil days God's grace is sufficient thorough difficult times and all the time and He will give me Peace! Amen
  • MockingBird
    Grace is God's willingness to bestow a part of Himself in and upon us and God gives us His peace : Not as the world gives : His peace passes all understanding and there is no sorrow to it !!
  • John
    The LORDS GRACE is poured out by our SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST through LOVE. For GOD so LOVED THE WORLD, HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIMSHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. JOHN 3:16 The LORDS GRACE IS POURED OUT THROUGH AND BY THE LOVE OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. The GRACE we receive allows us to receive greater Faith by the LORDS written WORD, POURED OUT IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. EPHESIANS 3:20 Now unto HIM that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. This is the LOVE OF GOD that pours out by GRACE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST IN TYE HOLY SPIRIT that gives us the PEACE THAT WE AS GODS CHILDREN so desire. We do not know HIS WAYS fully, but by HIS GRACE must trust in FAITH BY HIS ALL THAT PEACE IS OBTAINED BY HIS LOVE. When we realize EVERTHING IS FROM GOD WE CAN OBTAIN THE PEACE WE SEEK BY LOVE AND REVERENCE OF ALL THE BLESSINGS OUR LORD BESTOWS ON US. Read what KING DAVID SAID ABOUT OUR GOD. 1 CHRONICLES CHAPTER 29. WHEN WE HONOR THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS FULLY IN HEART, MIND AND SOUL THE PEACE OF GOD WILL TRULY BRING THE PEACE WE SEEK. GOD BLESS ALL.
