Called-Out Ones

April 17, 2016  — 

After spending the first part of Ephesians telling the believer about their personal identity in Christ, this section transitions to the identity and purpose of the community of believers – the church. The Greek word Paul uses for church is Š—…ecclessiaŠ—È – which translates literally as Š—…the called-out ones.Š—È Paul states for us here, quite plainly, GodŠ—Ès intention for the church in the world.

Scripture: Ephesians 3:8-12
