Today’s morning I was reading the book of Ephesians chapter four and five. I am going to encourage you read with me the book of the Ephesians as it said making most of every opportunity , because the days are evil.
It’s my practice, Before having my brekky , Saying ‘ hey’ to my creator. We believe our God is alive God , our God is a person . This person has emotion , heart and mind. This is a problem for most of us to not believing who he is. We are human like to see ‘ the seen’ things and everything unseen things is hard for us to believe and know is exist. We have soul and body.
Let me share to you my this morning devotion , I believe will bless you and touch you:
In our ordinary life whether we want or Not there is something we need to say No and there is something to say Yes. A bride in her wedding day says ‘ Yes I do ‘. In an good oppurtuinity of Job , Marriage … if it is in our benefit we say Yes. Opposite of that if something going to hurt us or not in our benefit we say No.
In this chapter of book; Paul writes to the member of his church in Ephesus. He call them as dearly loved children. He wants to teach them that to say ‘ yes ‘ to something and say ‘No’ to something else. He guides them and shown them be obedient to God. The way they are think and looking to things are weird and not right to God. There are some sexual immorality and impurity in the people of God which the mention of that is shameful. Paul knows they are need to be made new in the attitude of their mind.
He says get rid of all your old self which is corrupted by its deceitful desires. You created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. The word of ‘light’ mentioned several time in these two chapters. Paul is playing a beautiful sound of warning and teaching for us. He is obviously saying ‘ hey guys open your eyes ‘ , you are God’s holy people.
You are forgiven in Him. Now you need to forgive each other.
As I am reading verses in this chapters , I went to take some notes which some parts the Holy Spirit more emphasis for me ( for you may Holy spirit shows another view).
My conclusion is going to be this :
- More foolish talk
- More empty words
- You are light( the fruit of light is goodness , righteousness and truth )
- Live a life of love
- Live as children of light
- Live as wise
- Understand what the Lord’s will is
- Be filled with Spirit
- Sing and music in your heart for the Lord
- Always giving thanks to God
- Serve each other in love
wear all ‘ NOW ‘ principle that will build you up and others.
