2
Ephesians 2-3
  • We are all sinners saved by the grace of God
    through our faith (21-10)
  • Jesus on the cross brought us all together
    (211-22)
  • Pauls purpose was to reveal this mystery
    that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs (31-13)

3
Ephesians 2-3
  • Paul considered himself least of all the saints
    (not inferior) (38)
  • Yet, God graciously used him to present the
    mystery - to preach among the Gentiles that
    they too can be saved
  • He revealed

4
Unsearchable riches (38)
  • Unsearchable incomprehensible, unable to fully
    understand
  • The greatness of God
  • He do we know how to please and serve Him?
  • He tells us

5
Unsearchable riches (38)
  • Unsearchable riches greatness of His gifts
  • Even with what we are told, it is but the hem
    of the garment
  • Romans 1133 Colossians 22-3
  • Consider His grace, mercy, love, compassion,
    longsuffering, eternity, power, knowledge, etc.

6
Unsearchable riches (38)
  • It was preached among the Gentiles not
    exclusive
  • His ultimate gift our salvation! Titus 211,
    Eph. 21-10, Galatians 326-29, etc.

7
Fellowship of the mystery
  • and to make all see what is the fellowship of
    the mystery, (NKJV, KJV)
  • and to bring to light what is the administration
    of the mystery (NASB95)
  • and to bring to light for everyone what is the
    plan of the mystery (ESV)

8
Fellowship of the mystery
  • make all see - to illuminate, to cause to
    know
  • It is for ALL to see

9
Fellowship of the mystery
  • fellowship - sharing, association,
    communion The spiritual relationship we have
    with God and one another! Phil. 21, 1 John 13,
    6-7 1 Cor. 19
  • NASB, administration, ESV, plan
    stewardship slightly different Greek word
    Paul revealing this message

10
Fellowship of the mystery
  • hidden from the beginning
  • God had not fully revealed His plan for all
    mankind until the time of Paul
  • 1 Cor. 26-7, see 1 Peter 110-12
  • For example Melchizedek Psalm 1104
  • It was not a mistake 2 Peter 12-3

11
Manifold wisdom of God
  • Manifold many and varied
  • Heb. 1133, His ways past finding out

    KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING!
  • Do NOT question Him Rom. 920-21

12
Manifold wisdom of God
  • Now made known by the church
  • Is the church to reveal the wisdom of God? 1 Tim.
    315, 1 Thess. 18,
  • Here - the point is the very idea of the church
    REVEALS His wisdom
  • Consider this in light of the mystery the
    church promotes unity! Gal. 326-27, Rom.
    1212-27, Etc.

13
Manifold wisdom of God
  • THOUGHT If the church demonstrates the
    manifold wisdom of God, what is our attitude
    toward His wisdom if we seek to change the church
    in work, worship, name, organization, mission,
    doctrine, etc????? Do we not then call into
    question His wisdom?

  • An expression of heavenly beings 1 Peter 112,
    things which angels desire to look into.

15
Manifold wisdom of God

  • This was in Gods plan from the beginning!
  • Prophecy is an amazing testimony!
  • Many of Pauls letters appeal in detail to Gods
    former revelations to demonstrate this plan
  • 1 Peter 120, Eph. 14
