In the book of Ephesians, we see how the gospel story affects believers' everyday lives. God the Father planned throughout history for Jesus to create a family of followers comprised of Jews and non-Jews. He calls us to live in unity as one body in our families, neighborhoods, and churches because of God's grace. Scripture, prayer, and our relationships with each other equip us to put off our old humanity and put on new humanity that mimics Jesus and marks us as mature followers of Jesus. Fueled by the Holy Spirit, believers also stand tall against the spiritual evil that threatens our unity as a Church family and maturity as followers of Jesus.
