Saturdays Through Ephesians

For me and my family, Saturdays are for rest and the Word of God.  For a time, I am dwelling in Ephesians, so I thought I would invite you along.  What you will read is my translation, which like Eugene Peterson’s translation, reads more like a paraphrase than a literal interpretation.  So, with that in mind, here’s hoping that Saturdays through Ephesians gives us both rest in a restless age.


Ephesians 1. 1-2

This is Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus–through the will of God–sending grace to you, the holy ones in Ephesus and the faithful in Christ Jesus, and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
