The current topic is the book of Ephesians. Max Lucado's Life Lessons from Ephesians is a 12-session study on Paul's letter to the Ephesians. In this letter, he focuses on the church as the bride of Christ and speaks of Jesus dying for his bride and anticipating his Bride wearing his spotless gown. The key themes for the study are: we have spiritual blessings through Christ; each believer is gifted through the Spirit of God; our faith should work its way into all of our relationships; our spiritual strength comes from God through his Word and our faith. Each lesson has the following sections: Key Scripture Verse, Reflection, Situation, Observation, Exploration, Inspiration, Reaction, Life Lessons, Devotion, and Journaling.
