Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their discussion of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians.
You are a different person. I don’t different in the sense of strange, but rather if you have heard, believed, and were sealed through baptism in the Holy Spirit, then you are a different person. As it says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, if you are “in Christ” then you are “a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come.” But this was not to be understood only as a one time event—a rite of passage that happened many years ago in our lives—but the beginning of a life-long journey of faith, growing in holiness and in intimacy with Christ our Savior. In fact, St. Paul proclaims that we are to “be filled with all the fullness of God.” This is what we will discuss today on Deep In Scripture.
