Living and Breathing Ephesians to Philemon is an easy reading paraphrase of these Epistles. Here are Paul's letters to these embryonic early churches; many written from prison, and a couple shortly before he was martyred.Guarded, and carefully copied through the centuries for us, they are now unraveled in a fresh way, in the everyday language of the twenty-first century. They are here amplified to explain the revelation Paul personally received from Jesus that he was so concerned to share with all who would receive it. Here is Paul's heart revealed, with his instructions and encouragement to his closest friends and co-workers. Here are his descriptions of a life Anointed by Holy Spirit who wants to live in us, to strengthen you and me to demonstrate with signs and wonders through us that Jesus is our Redeemer and Father God's Anointed Son, and Lord of All...The reality of the promises, the prayers and the truths of this wonderful Good News that Jesus paid such a high price to bring us, is vibrantly brought to life. While Holy Spirit's anointing, to bring life-changing, heart-changing, healing power to comfort, to save, to deliver, to restore, and to bring hope is here laid out. Alongside the text, are thought-provoking study questions, notes and cross-references, to unveil the enormity of all that Jesus won for us, and to reveal our Heavenly Father's wondrous heart of love; His longing to know and be known, by us all.
