Lift Your Eyes: Reflections on Ephesians

Lift Your Eyes

Hint: Bookmark this page, which has links to every post in the series. Scroll down for audio podcast links.

Lift Your Eyes is a series of reflections in both text and audio podcast format covering every sentence in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.



I’m offering this series of 70 reflections for free to anyone who wants to spend time diving in and learning from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. The reflections are a little more in-depth than the average devotional, but still they’re designed to be accessible and readable by the average person.

Here are some of the ways you might be able to use the series:

  • Make a plan to read or listen to one reflection per day (or every two days, or once a week, or whatever suits you), and use the questions at the end as a basis for reflection and prayer. This would take 10–20 minutes each time. You can bookmark this page which has links to all the posts in order (see below).
  • Subscribe to the entire podcast (using the podcast player of your choice, see below), so you can listen to an episode as you travel or commute. Each podcast episode is about 15 minutes long.
  • Use the posts and questions in a weekly Bible study or discussion group.
  • Share individual posts with friends on social media if you think they’re relevant.
  • If you’re a Bible teacher, use the posts to get ideas for teaching Ephesians.
  • Also, if you’re a Bible teacher, share the posts for people to read in parallel with your own series on Ephesians.
  • Encourage others involved in your church or ministry to do any of the above.
  • Keep this link as a reference in case you’d like to do any of the above in the future.

Below you can connect to the audio podcast series in the platform of your choice.
