The Book of Ephesians - Part 3

Chapter 5:
v2 - We need to live as Christ lived - WITH love and IN love.  Being willing to deny ourselves for the sake of others because we love them.

v20 - We should be thankful for EVERYTHING in our lives - "giving thanks ALWAYS for ALL THINGS" - good things, "bad" things - EVERYTHING.


Chapter 6:
v8 - The Lord WILL bless us when we do good and obey Him.  It doesn't matter who we are, or where, or what, God can - and will - still bless us.

v11 - "put on the WHOLE armour of God".  It is ONLY when we are wearing the WHOLE armour of God that we can withstand the devil and his tricks.  Even if it's only ONE piece missing, we will be able to fall.  We must have the WHOLE, complete set of armour on or none at all.

I know that this is REALLY short, but I trust that the blessings that you might get from this will cover any disappointment.  :)

  1. Thankyou Beth for sharing these insights!
    Chap. 5:2 really stood out for me... to live IN love... love being a choice, a commitment of laying up ones self, selflessly, for others... :) so easy to to say... harder to do on a day to day, minute to minute basis!

    God bless you richly Beth... these thoughts were a blessing to me :)

    Love you,
