“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” Ephesians 1:7 Some of the most hopeful books of the Bible – Philippians, Colossians, and Ephesians – come out of Paul’s house arrest in Rome.  If you feel discouraged or question whether the Christian life is worth it, Ephesians proves to be a great tonic.  It prescribes the riches in Christ available to all.  No one is hopeless whose hope is in God and His Word.
