Discussion for Ephesians 5

  • Margarita
    I like Ephesians because you can apply it to our every day life and teaches us the priority that we should have daily in our Christian walk and how to commune with God our Father. It also teaches how we should have a clean vessel so the Holy Spirit can dwell in us with Almighty Power! To be a living sacrificed temple for God, only God. To be sold out the same time villa lent of evil.

    We must dedicate our time to God only who can save us and we must meditate his words and receive his words every day. Delight yourself unto the Lord first all things the desire of thine heart will be added. Everything will work for good to those who love Jesus . To the couple we must submit ourselves unto God so that God can provide us happiness and peaceful relationship with our spouse.

    Ephesians 5:3
    Can I challenge you to think like Paul is challenging us to think? God"s plan is that we not allow fornication, or uncleanness, or covetousness into our lives. NOT ONE TIME. No pornography at all. NONE. No worldly movie at all. NONE. How in the world do we accomplish this in this particular generation? Memorize and meditate on this verse and others like it.
  • Anonymous for verse 4
    If anything about this world standard is anything to by, we find that there is so much filthiness in words, actions even in our ways of life , believers are admonished not copy or conform to the standard of this world Roms 12:2, the church must as a matter of importance teach the believers to be honourable in their words and actions at the same time learn to give thanks to God in all things.
