TEACHING- [Past posts below]


The apostle now gives practical living truth-
As believers- we do not walk after the flesh- we are instead to be filled with the Spirit- and walk as new creatures in Christ-
Ephesians 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
Ephesians 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Ephesians 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Ephesians 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Once again- a theme I have hit on the past 2 weeks- we see the death of Christ for us as an example of the love of God-
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
Then Paul talks about the marriage union- the same instructions he gave in his other letters-
Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Ephesians 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Most of us are familiar with it-
Husbands love your wives- wives- submit- not in a negative way- but as examples of Christ and the church.
The church is lead by Christ- the head- so the family unit- when functioning properly- is lead by the husband- if he is loving his wife properly.
Now- the verse I wanted to emphasize the most-
Ephesians 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
When I read it the other day- it seemed to ‘say more’ than what we usually ‘see’.
The church as the Body of Christ is an ‘image’ that most of us are familiar with.
But here it seems to go further.
The apostle says we are bone of his bone- flesh of his flesh- and he says this is a great mystery-
Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
We as humans were made alive when God gave us life- spirit- identity- [Some sites see here  https://ccoutreach87.webstarts.com/blog/post/ephesians-5-8 ]
Genesis 2:7
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
