    Ephesians teaches us how to love and to continue in love" and not to be a part taker of evilness. This book is powerful Jesus Christ and our Father has given us the way to live through his word. Every word that is written in the bible comes from GOD: through man. As he gave his only begotten son to come and lead us. That was GOD: working and speaking through his son. AMEN.

    Lu2627, what I think is that God is all powerful . Lillian thinks that we have to accept him. Scripture commands all to repent and believe, but none can in and of themselves.
  • Sylvia Williams
    the bible is a survival kit for those who are lost
  • Lu2677

    Being one the most informational passages about Christian conduct and promise, it also raises an important and baffling question. If in fact we have and believe, why are/do so many sit on their blessed assurance???
  • Ella
    I find ephesians is hope and faith that fills my soul. We have hope through our Lord Jesus Christ.
