Bible Commentary for Ephesians 3:11

Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 3:11


3:9 What is the fellowship of the mystery - What those mysterious blessings are whereof all believers jointly partake. Which was, in a great measure, hidden from eternity by God, who, to make way for the free exercise of his love, created all things - This is the foundation of all his dispensations.

3:10 That the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church - By what is done in the church, which is the theatre of the divine wisdom.

3:12 By whom we have free access - Such as those petitioners have, who are introduced to the royal presence by some distinguished favourite. And boldness - Unrestrained liberty of speech, such as children use in addressing an indulgent father, when, without fear of offending, they disclose all their wants, and make known all their requests.

3:13 The not fainting is your glory.

Discussion for Ephesians 3:11

  • Anthony on Ephesians 3:11
    As a Gentile believer who had no hope in this world it is heartening to know that God had before teh foundation of the world made a provision for us. Verse 10 brings a smile when one sees that God wanted to show the Angelic beings His Manifold Wisdom as revealed in His Eternal Purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord. God would have ALL man to be saved through the Grace that is in our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen to that
  • G Holliday on Ephesians 3:11
    Mankind is inherently an immoral entity guided by the lust of power and control over others. God kicked the devil out of his Kingdom because of such lust. God never meant for mankind to stay on the earth forever. His eternal purpose to have mankind voluntarily worship him and love him as the living God will be fulfilled. However, most of mankind will be banished along with Satin according to the Bible. Amen
