Thanks for subscribing to Lift Your Eyes: Reflections on Ephesians. This is a quick request to all my subscribers, to ask if you’d be willing to help others find out about the podcast by rating it, reviewing it, or sharing it in the podcast platform of your choice?
It makes a real difference–in fact, rating, reviewing and sharing by individuals is the main way that people find out about podcasts like this!
As I’m sure you’re aware, the Covid-19 situation means that there are many people who are particularly isolated, fearful, and in need of encouragement and help. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians speaks into such situations, and is especially relevant right now. And while I didn’t create the series with the precise Covid-19 situation in mind, I did write it to encourage people to lift their eyes beyond their hard circumstances to God’s great purposes through Christ. So I think it will be helpful to many in our world today.
Of course, please don’t feel any obligation to do this at all – and I’m not keeping track or anything! But if you’d like to do this, please go into your podcast platform and rate, review or share (or even better, do all three).
Many thanks for subscribing, and I pray that many will come to see the wonderful hope and security in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in Him for salvation.

The academic details behind these reflections
In this series, I don’t go into detail justifying every statement I make about the background and meaning of Ephesians. I’ve done that elsewhere. If you’re interested in the reasons I say what I say here, and want to chase it up further with lots of ancient Greek, technical stuff, and footnotes, check out my book Reading Ephesians and Colossians After Supersessionism: Christ’s Mission through Israel to the Nations.
