1PAUL, messenger of Christ Jesus by God's will, to all faithful Christians at Ephesus:

2grace and peace be to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for giving us through Christ every spiritual benefit as citizens of Heaven.

4For consider what he has donebefore the foundation of the world he chose us to be, in Christ, his children, holy and blameless in his sight.

5He planned, in his love, that we should be adopted as his own children through Jesus Christthis was his will and pleasure

6that we might praise that glorious generosity of his which he granted to us in his Beloved.

7It is through him, at the cost of his own blood, that we are redeemed, freely forgiven through that free and generous grace

8which has overflowed into our lives and given us wisdom and insight.

9For God has allowed us to know the secret of his plan, and it is this: he purposed long ago in his sovereign will

10that all human history should be consummated in Christ, that everything that exists in Heaven or earth should find its perfection and fulfillment in him.

11In Christ we have been given an inheritance, since we were destined for this, by the One who works out all his purposes according to the design of his own will.

12So that we, in due time, as the first to put our hope in Christ, may bring praise to his glory!

13And you too trusted him, when you had heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. And after you gave your confidence to him you were, so to speak, stamped with the promised Holy Spirit

14as a pledge of our inheritance, until the day when God completes the redemption of what is his own; and that will again be to the praise of his glory.

15This is why since I heard of this faith of yours in the Lord Jesus and the love which you bear towards fellowChristians,

16I thank God continually for you and I never give up praying for you; and this is my prayer.

17That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the allglorious Father, will give you spiritual wisdom and the insight to know more of him:

18that you may receive that inner illumination of the spirit which will make you realize how great is the hope to which he is calling youthe magnificence and splendor of the inheritance promised to Christians

19and how tremendous is the power available to us who believe in God. That power is the same divine energy

20which was demonstrated in Christ when he raised him from the dead and gave him the place of highest honour in Heaven

21a place that is infinitely superior to any command, authority, power or control, and which carries with it a name far beyond any name that could ever be used in this world or the world to come.

22God has placed everything under the power of Christ and has set him up as supreme head to the Church.

23For the Church is his body, and in that body lives fully the One who fills the whole wide universe.
