Off With the Old, On With the New

Our lesson this week begins in Ephesians 4:17-19 with Paul’s admonition to the Ephesian believers that they must no longer walk as “the Gentiles” do. I find this to be an interesting change in the way he has been addressing them, since up to this point he has been referring to them as “you Gentiles”... Continue Reading →

We’re Not from Around Here

Monday Memories Originally posted April 20, 2011, we have moved again, after seven years in our Pennsylvania home, to Texas! I have felt again the sentiments expressed in this post, as milestones have continued in the lives of those friends we left behind, the lives of our new friends, and our own. We now have...

Unity in the Body of Christ

We find ourselves now at the hinge of the book of Ephesians. For the first three chapters, Paul has been filling our minds and hearts with the wonders of God’s glorious grace in our salvation, this grace which was lavished on us with mercy and love—even when we were dead in our trespasses—and by which...

Later, in verse 13 he asks them “not to lose heart over... Continue Reading →

Just Who Do I Think I Am?!

(Originally posted July 14, 2011) This thought has returned to me recently concerning my writing. I'm also struggling to re-establish a running routine, so I'm engaged with that mental battle as well. I am now 51years old, a mother-in-law, and a grandmother. I am also a writer. My primary identity, however, is Child of God. This is... Continue Reading →

Made Alive and One in Christ

In this week’s study of Ephesians chapter 2, we are first plunged to the depths of the darkness of human nature before being raised by the grace and mercy of the Father into the light of his love by two of the simplest, yet most profound words of the gospel: ‘But God.’ In this we...

To The Praise of His Glory

(Originally published March 13, 2017) This week we begin our study of the book of Ephesians with a hard gallop through the entire first chapter.  Hopefully the truths in this precious chapter will be written large enough to read as we pass by.  There are deep wells of doctrine and encouragement to be found here,...
