Daily Devotional from Ephesians 5—Verses 10-11…and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.Such a simple sentence. Do you ever wonder what pleases the Lord? Exposing the things hidden in darkness is pleasing to the Lord. It’s not so much just telling people what’s wrong. Much of the time this won’t always be done with w...

Daily Devotional from Ephesians 4--Verses 26-27 (CSB)Be angry and do not sin. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger, and don’t give the devil an opportunity. Anger is a powerful emotion. It signals that something is wrong. It is a needed emotion. Anger helps us see when a relationship needs some care. Like any emotion, if left untreated, unspoken, or uncared for, anger can open our hearts to sin...

Daily Devotional from Ephesians 3--Verses 4-6When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the go...

Ephesians 6:4Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Do you see the balance there? This verse calls for discipling your children without angering your children. Remember, children can get angry. So, we as parents, and especially as fathers, need to be careful of belaboring a point, getting riled up in the moment, or resorting...

Ephesians 5:3Sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Nine times Ephesians calls the church saints, which means the holy ones of God. Being Holy doesn’t just mean having elevated morality. The idea of being holy is that you’re different. That means special and set apart. It’s like your birthday. It’s a special day. Unlike any o...

Ephesians 4:15-16We are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. One body, many different parts. One church, many different people. Do you know we can be one and still be different? That’s the...

Check out the dimensions of Jesus’ love for you! It has breadth, which means it encompasses everybody. It has length, which means it never runs out. It has height, which means it’s there on the mountaintop. And it also has depth,...

Ephesians 1:3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. One of the most repeated words in this first chapter is the small little word “in.” But what a huge concept! We hear the phrase, “Are you in?” “Oh yeah, I’m in!” Leading out of the Seattle Seahawks’ locker room is a sign that reads, “I’m in!” It’s ...
