Ephesians 3:1–13 teaches that God’s eternal plan for humanity is to unite Jews and gentiles as one body of Christ, to bring together people from every tribe and tongue as fellow heirs of God’s glory in the church. What we do in the church today counts forever because it is a foreshadowing of the eternal worship and fellowship we will enjoy when the Lord consummates His plan for the ages. In this session, Dr. Burk Parsons explains that being committed to the church right now matters for eternity, reminding us to love fellow believers and to serve them in the context of the church as an anticipation and preparation for the age to come.
