Blogging the Bible 326 – Ephesians 1-2 – God’s Trinity, our Unity

It’s beginning to get repetitive – I keep finding in Paul’s letters more than I’d ever imagined about God’s work of bringing the Gentiles into the story which so far has been that of Israel. It’s here again, as part of the image of the Spiritual Temple, brought together by Christ the Cornerstone.

2:18 is in the setting  of this priority, and gives us a glimpse of the working of the Trinity in bringing us together to God. 

…for through him both of us [Jew and Gentile] have access in one Spirit to the Father.

Paul takes the classic pattern of prayer and applies it to the wider question of how we come to God. And we see a hint of the pattern by which we are drawn into the very life of God. We come to the Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit.

How do you see the work of the Trinity in your life? How is God calling you to deeper and better fellowship with your fellow Christians who are different from you?
