“30” Days in Ephesians 6, Day 31: Doing

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.”      James 1:22-24 This lesson is one of the most important ones in our study.

30 Days in Ephesians 6, Day 30: Review

We’ve read Paul’s entire letter to the Ephesian believers. We’ve rejoiced in the wonderful truths that he reviewed in the first half of the letter, and we’ve seen that those truths lead to a way of living that reflects God’s goodness and glory. We’ve seen specifically how that should look in parent-child and master-servant (or employer-employee) relationships. We know how it should look in the husband-wife relationship as well. But […]

30 Days in Ephesians 6, Day 28: Our Sword

Our study is coming to a close way too soon! We’ll finish looking at the armor, then review and take time to consider how to apply what we’ve learned. However, I would like to take a 3-day break after this lesson so that I can come back and finish out our last few lessons with my full energy and attention.

We have donned boots that ready us with the good news of reconciliation with God. What do we pick up next as God arms us for our lifelong […]

30 Days in Ephesians 6, Day 25: Our Shoes

How did you do on your own yesterday? Isn’t it exciting to see how much we can learn about a passage with a few study helps? The breastplate of righteousness is an important piece of armor. It protects the vital organs during battle, and it protects our hearts as we face spiritual battle against our deceptive, determined foes. Christ’s righteousness, made ours at salvation, is impenetrable against Satan’s attacks when […]
