Ephesians 3:1-13 – In this passage there is a CLEAR SHIFT in the form of Paul’s writing. He goes from the GENERAL to the SPECIFIC. Watch the way Paul emphasized the effect of GOD’S BIG PLAN on him as an individual!
Paul shifts the focus from the general to the specific. Paul has discovered the BIG PLAN that takes in ALL OF HISTORY. And if it takes in ALL OF HISTORY, that includes ME. If the MEANING OF HISTORY is NOT about me, than the meaning of MY LIFE is NOT about ME. If the meaning of HISTORY IS God’s plan to save people from all nations then the meaning of MY LIFE is to be part of this plan.
The change worked by the gospel is NOT just GENERAL and THEORETICAL, it is PERSONAL.
