When we think about our relationships, it is very easy to reason within our minds that they really aren’t that important when it comes to our relationship with Jesus. Paul, however, debunks that notion. As he digs into the marriage relationship in Ephesians 5, we can begin to see why our relationships really do matter to God. He cares about them!
God can seem mysterious and far away. His ways are definitely not like our ways. How can we know Him? How can we know our role in this whole “Christian” lifestyle? Is there some sort of playbook? As we dive into the book of Ephesians, we will see God’s ultimate purpose, our ultimate purpose, and how God intends for us to live out both in our everyday lives. We will learn what it means to live in community with God and community with others.
