Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in the book of Ephesians and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught by Christ Jesus.
As explained in “Discovering Gifts”, there is one body and one Spirit (v. 4) so your responsibility is to use your individual gifts so the church is equipped for works of service.
Noted in “Traits of the New Character” is that before God came to earth in the flesh, the world had a major problem but because of Jesus, humanity was pushed forward to change the world for the better.
Brought out in “Strengthened in Faith as a Child” is that all who accept Christ as Savior are a child of God. The basis of your inspiration is that the love of God through the Son shines on you. Then you reflect the light and provide brightness for the lives of others.
As discussed in “A Cord of Three Strands”, you are taught that the love of Christ for the church is an example to follow. This love is sincere, wholesome, and stable as two grow old together knowing the best is yet to come.
A thought from “Walking the Walk” is that the moment a society becomes a devoted fellow servant to our Lord and Savior is the moment a society alleviates many issues faced in the world today.
You’ve been given God’s armor as protection and strength. The rest is the story of glory as pointed out in “Armor for the Battle”. The shield of faith will block the darts of temptation, the helmet of hope will keep you looking forward, and the Love of God through Christ will be your breastplate of righteousness.
Keep up with my spiritual journey over the next few weeks either through following this blog or the Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God – A Spiritual Journey. Let’s share thoughts or ideas about applying our faith so we step ahead along the path to victory.
Thanks for the great summary. Very helpful.
