Although Ephesians is one of the New Testamentâ€™s shortest in terms of word count â€” only 6 chapters and 155 verses â€” it is perhaps its most applicable to todayâ€™s culture. In addition to the divine beauty and power we find in Ephesians, this epistle also provides Paulâ€™s most direct address about the life that emerges from a disciple of Jesus. In this epistle Paul conveys his pastoral heart for the Ephesian believers by focusing upon who they are in Christ as it relates to their struggles, their new life, community, pursuits of unity and holiness, and how to engage lifeâ€™s challenges. Perhaps the most contemporary book in the New Testament, Ephesians and this study by Tony Merida offers very practical answers to basic questions about the Christian life and our identity in Christ.
