The Survival Guide: How to Follow Jesus in the City

Part II: What We Do

 Both our experience and the Scriptures clearly reflect that following Jesus in the city is hard. But Christianity actually began as an urban religion that thrived in many of the least likely cities of the world. Ephesus was such a city, and Paul (the author of this letter to the Ephesians) knew firsthand the many challenges that faced the followers of Jesus he cared for so deeply. Consequently, he primarily wrote this letter not so much to write a theological treatise, but instead to provide a “survival guide” for a church on the front lines of God’s mission.

 

We’ve already seen in the first three chapters how Paul has anchored our souls in what God has done for us through the gospel. He now turns our attention to how we should live in response. Part 2 of our “Survival Guide” series will provide a vision for our lives, as we see how who God is and what He’s done, shapes who I am and how I live.
