EPHESIANS: VERSE BY VERSE

EPHESIANS: VERSE BY VERSE
Prepared by Dr. John E. Marshall

EPHESIANS 1:15-16

Eph. 1:15a “Wherefore I also, after I heard. . .”

Paul had received a favorable dispatch from Ephesus. Though in jail, he was praising, not pouting; grateful, not grumbling.
The best news a minister hears is good news about his people’s spiritual condition. Paul “heard” this very type of joyous tidings while in jail. The blessings described in verses 3-14 were producing visible results in the lives of the Ephesian Christians, “wherefore” the Apostle will now give thanks to God.
