How can the church seem worthy of our time and sacrifice and loyalty when it appears so insignificant in the eyes of the world? Paul answers that question as he wrote to the little church in the big city of Ephesus. Paul knew the struggles we experience in the church (see Eph. 4-6). But in Ephesians 1-3 he lays out God’s plan for his church. He helps us see what God is accomplishing through the church in the world. He helps us know that if we aren’t in Christ, we are missing out on what we were made for. Surely we want to be a church that helps people to grow in the hope, riches, and power we have available to us in Christ.
