Bible Study Notes

Ephesians 3:1-7   Paul begins a sentence and gives the subject, “I, Paul,” but doesn’t complete it before the period in verse 7.  Checked with commentary which says it picks back up in verse 14.

Ephesians 3:6  “That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs…”
Main point of Paul’s rabbit running.

Ephesians 3:20-21   Sounds like a benediction.  Paul may have planned to end there and then thought of other things to write.  Or he may have gotten caught up in what he was writing and spilled over into a little praise session.

Ephesians 4:28  “…let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.”

Ephesians 5:5  “…no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.”
Ephesians 5:7  “Be not ye therefore partakers with them.”
Sounds cut and dried, but he speaks of continuous action.  We who through the grace of God have been freed from our sin have the choice not to sin.  We don’t have to do those things as the unsaved do who are still enslaved to sin.  Unfortunately, we are still tied to our fleshly bodies with their sin nature intact, so the urge and temptation to follow sin is still with us.  We must choose to forsake the sin and follow the urging and leading of the Spirit.

Ephesians 5:20  “Giving thanks always…”

Ephesians 6:19  “…that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel”
