Pastor David Smith begins a study of the book of Ephesians, providing a brief history on the people of Ephesus. Paul writes to the church in Ephesus. The Apostle spent over three years in Ephesus. He writes a general letter to them instructing them in a number of areas. He begins with a Prayer of Praise in 1:3-14. Interesting is the fact that these verses in the Greek text are one long sentence. This emphasizes unity. Within these verses He praises God Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for all He has done for us in Christ.
