Challenge the status quo of our culture (and even some churches) by encouraging your group to live more purely the essential convictions of Christianity.
Although Ephesians is one of the New Testament's shortest books in terms of word count, it is perhaps the most applicable to today's culture. This epistle also provides Paul's most direct address about the life of a disciple of Jesus. Paul conveyed his pastoral heart for the Ephesian believers by focusing on who they were in Christ. Specifically he addressed issues related to their new life, the community of believers, the pursuits of unity and holiness, and life's challenges. Therefore, the Book of Ephesians and this study offer practical answers to contemporary believers' basic questions about the Christian life and our identity in Christ.
