Hi, I am Che Ahn, senior pastor of Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, CA. This is God Today. I was really meditating on Ephesians 1, I love the book of Ephesians. It is the only book that there is actually no correction, there are just words of encouragement. And what is really amazing is that in Acts 19, arguably, Paul had the greatest revival in all his ministry in the city of Ephesus. We see how he went from Corinth in Acts 18 to Ephesus chapter 19. And the Bible says that he ended up staying 3 years in Ephesus.
What is remarkable is that to give you a contrast, he spent only three weeks in Thessalonica, but he spent 3 years in Ephesus. Why? A massive revival broke out. We see how all of these have heard the Gospel as he used Ephesus as an apostolic base. What would be Asia today, would be Turkey, modern-day Turkey today, and yet we see how God did extraordinary miracles through the apostle Paul. We see how handkerchiefs, pieces of clothing were taken from his body and given to the sick and demonized, and they were delivered.
