This study looks at two letters the Apostle Paul wrote to his protégé, Timothy—letters to a young man whom Paul regarded as a son. Paul had trained Timothy to be a pastor, and from these letters we know Paul had left Timothy as his replacement in the church at Ephesus while Paul moved on to another country. Timothy apparently felt inadequate to replace Paul in this role. After all, who wouldn’t feel this way if replacing such a highly-educated man as the pastor of one of the first churches he had begun in Asia? This study focuses on the twin traits in our Christian lives of faithfulness and endurance. They are not traits which can either save us or keep us saved—they are important because they affect our relationship with Jesus. Faithfulness means we intentionally choose God’s way of doing things or knowing things or following him. Endurance means we keep on being faithful even when we don’t believe we have enough information, ability, time, or anything else to be able to complete the task He has been given us. We, then, look at faithfulness as the choice, and endurance as the passion, or maybe sometimes just as our determination. Our Christian life is rarely about experience or happiness or feeling good about who we are or what we’re doing—God asks us to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). This study is about how we keep going when we can neither feel nor see God in our life or in our work.

The book of Hebrews was written to people who knew the Old Testament well, who had followed its teachings for generations. God had been creating a picture of Jesus for centuries so He would be recognized when He came to earth. But people then, and even still today, clung to the old traditions and ways of life. They wanted to follow the shadow rather than the reality. But as we look carefully at the pictures God had painted of Jesus in the perfect lamb to be sacrificed at Passover, or the silver of redemption which formed the foundation for the Tabernacle, or Moses the beloved leader who led the people to freedom - in all these pictures we find beautiful details of Jesus which we might overlook if it were not for the enduring picture. In Jesus, in His reality, however, we find He is sufficient for all our needs in our life both now and for eternity. See the details in the picture, but seek the reality in your relationship with the living Jesus.

"Ephesians" is a study about our walk with Jesus. Whether we walk with our family or our neighbors or fellow church members, we need to reflect Jesus in our lives. Thought-provoking questions lead the reader to walk with Jesus more closely.
