Ephesians 6
by Audrey Rogers on August 31st, 2020
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...  Read More
Ephesians 5
by Audrey Rogers on August 28th, 2020
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...  Read More

Ephesians 2

Ephesians 2:14For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility. There was a thick-slab wall that stood in the temple. It read: “Foreigners must not enter… Whoever is caught will have himself to blame for his ensuing death.” This was called the Thanatos Inscription. Thanatos is a Greek word that means death. So, you can call it th...  Read More
Ephesians 1
by Audrey Rogers on August 24th, 2020
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 ...  Read More
