Do you have a place in your house where you keep your personal treasures? Some of us have a special little box or a shelf that contained Mementos from our past that remind us of who we once were and who we are Now, do you have one of those? My husband has one. I don't know what's in it, but every once in a while he'll pull something out of it. That reminds him of all the pieces that make up who he is. We all love the idea of some kind of treasure in a treasure chest. 2000 years ago, God took in a rebel named paul. Then God gave Paul the treasure of himself, God and sent him out to invite others to receive that treasure. Also, some of those who responded lived in the region of Ephesus on the west coast of modern Turkey. The letter will be studying together was originally written by paul. To those Ephesians. Paul was born in Tarsus, a major roman city on the coast of Southeast Turkey. Tarsus was famous for its tent making industry and paul was trained in that craft as his primary paying profession. In the bible, paul is known by two names Saul which was his hebrew name, and paul, which was his roman name. To keep things simple, we will call him by his roman named paul because that's what he mainly used in his travels and ministry. Paul was a highly educated and zealous jew as a young man. He was so zealous that he became determined to wipe out all the christians period, wipe them out. Then one day jesus christ knocked him flat and grabbed his attention. The account of what happened Is in Acts Chapter nine. It's pretty dramatic. After believing in jesus christ as his savior, Paul was sent by Jesus as his apostle to take the gospel to the people who were not jews the bible calls those people gentiles. This was an amazing turnaround for someone who once had nothing to do with the dirty gentiles. Paul wrote about this commission in Ephesians chapter three verse eight. This is what he said, Although I am less than the least of all the Lord's people. This Grace was given me to preach to the gentiles the boundless riches of christ, boundless riches. That sounds like an overflowing treasure chest, doesn't it?
