As our study in Ephesians is coming to a close, I can't help but to compare the end of this letter with how other stories often finish. Some movies, for example, come together slowly and neatly, with everyone knowing exactly how the story will end. My favorite movies however, are those that having a massive finish. They end with a bang, a twist, or a complete reorientation of what everyone was expecting, and that's just the way the letter to Ephesus ends! After Paul has described what our practical relationships should look like in the Kingdom of God, the letter could have wrapped up nicely with a few parting good-byes and a prayer. Instead, we are left with an intense command to "wake up" to the spiritual battle that we all find ourselves in because the forces of darkness will not go down without a fight. This Sunday we will talk about what spiritual warfare is all about and how we are to respond when under attack.
