The final part in this series on the letter to the Ephesians.
Paul reminds us that the battle is not with flesh and blood, but with the principalities and powers. The upside of this is we are not against flesh and blood, but for it!
The end of Ephesians recognises that the ruler of the world is the adversary. God’s kingdom is breaking into a world dominated by the powers of darkness.
What, though, is our response? Do we panic? Do we protest? Or is there a third way? The strength of God’s Kingdom, and the counter to the spirit of the world, is to recognise our unique identity as brothers and sisters under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
We finish this series remembering that what we’ve learnt is to be lived out, complete with the armour of God and a prayerful devotion to Christ.
