  • Christ (Ephesians 1:3)
  • Children (Ephesians 1:4-6)
  • Community (Ephesians 1:7-8)


  1. (Ephesians 1:1-2) Distorted lenses lead to distorted lives. How do you think God views you? What do the Scriptures say about how God views you?
  2. (Ephesians 1:3) How do you view God? What has formed this view? How is your view of God distorted from what the Scriptures say about Him? How has the Gospel changed how you view God?
  3. (Ephesians 1:4-6) How do you view yourself? Have you ever experienced good doctrines that divide? How does an inflated view of self always lead to division? How does humility allow us to disagree without dividing?
  4. (Ephesians 1:7-8) How do you view others? Where has hurt and cynicism colored your view of others? How has the gospel helped you view others as Jesus does?
