"In Christ Alone"

Eph. 1:3-14 is a remarkable section of Paul’s letter. To begin with, it is all one sentence. English translations break it up for ease of reading, but in the Greek it is all one sentence. John Stott summarizes them by calling them, “a gateway, a golden chain, a kaleidoscope, a racehorse, an operatic overture and flight of an eagle. In short, contained here are the “spiritual blessing we have in Christ Jesus!”
