Theme: God is love, therefore we too are a people of love in His world of love. Ephesus was missing the love of God; it was a lost Paradise and we too live in a loveless land. The Apostol Paul sees it and tells us that God is making a new paradise, a new creation called the church and he is filling it with his great plan and with his love. God has given us adoption and in him we have all the security because he will never abandon us and he will never die. Love begins with God; we don’t have love outside of him.
