From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by God's will. To God's holy and faithful people who are united with Christ in the city of Ephesus.
Good will and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are yours!
Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer.
Before the creation of the world, he chose us through Christ to be holy and perfect in his presence.
Because of his love he had already decided to adopt us through Jesus Christ. He freely chose to do this
so that the kindness he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory.
