Pastor Dick LaFountain
Paul's Letter to the Ephesians

Ephesians is probably my favorite Epistle. I've preached 45 messages from it and enjoy its powerful truths. I am reading here from the New International Version but I prefer to read it in the New King James version because it is familiar to me, and because NIV sometimes looses the power of some of the words by trying to make it a paraphrase instead of a direct translation. Whatever version you choose don't read it speedily. It should be savored, one paragraph at a time, then think about what was just written by Paul. If you can take the time it would be well worth it to listen through my preaching series on Ephesians. I especially encourage you to listen to messages 7-11 where Paul talks about election and the sovereignty of God. It may help you understand those concepts. Then jump down to the Spiritual Warfare messages 40-45. You'll be glad you did.

Every chapter has multiple significant verses to commit to memory.
