Rethinking "The Empty Nest" by Jane @ The Elizabeth Company

Authored by TheElizabethCompany on Fri, Sep 07 2012 - 08:53 AM

I remember when our sons first moved out and my husband and I had the house all to ourselves. I felt like I had become a teenager again. I could dress and walk around the house in whatever state I wanted to. I could buy fewer groceries, pay lower utility bills, cook less food, worry less about if the heat or air was off when we left the house on ...

Ephesians Chapter 2 Part 13

Authored by revsuz on Tue, Sep 04 2012 - 02:56 PM

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are ...

Ephesians Chapter 2 Part 12

Authored by revsuz on Thu, Aug 30 2012 - 12:03 AM

V.14- He is our peace. Peace from what? Peace from the Law, from the controversy over circumcision. Peace that allowed Jews and Gentiles to share in the inheritance of the Kingdom. When Jesus came, He made null and void the laws of the Pharisees. Their desire to steal the honor that was due God was so strong they made up rules that made them the ...

“Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the ...

Ephesians Chapter 2 Part 7

Authored by revsuz on Fri, Aug 17 2012 - 12:29 AM

We saw in chapter one that Paul was addressing born-again Christians.  He told us that as Christians, we are holy and without blame (sin) walking in love before Jesus.   Paul told us that after we heard the gospel of salvation, we believed on Jesus and were filled with the Holy Spirit.  God made Jesus the head of the church, ...

Ephesians Chapter 1 Part 5

Authored by revsuz on Fri, Jul 27 2012 - 08:23 AM

“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints (the people of God),” (Ephesians 1:15) tells us, as it does in Colossians, that after Paul and the other Christians heard of the faith of the Ephesians, they prayed.  So we know information was passing through the churches ...

Grief And More Grief

Authored by MaryContrary on Thu, Jul 26 2012 - 09:20 AM

As one issue disappears, another turns up. They're growing like weeds. This week I am dealing with an angry and hateful co-worker and it's making me weary. I am also struggling to control my temper. Today this speaks to me but, it will be difficult to do: Today, I will be a woman who extends grace. Who holds her tongue. Who tames her anger. Who ...

Pick It Up

Authored by justforgiven on Wed, Jul 25 2012 - 06:29 PM

Luke 9:23 was my thought  in todays devotional. What does Jesus really mean here?  What is it to pick up your cross daily? Taking up-tells me it is an action verb..in the present tense. It is a daily thing. "It is a voluntary acceptance of the responsibilities  and sufferings incidental to being a disciple of Christ."  Folow ...

“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:” (Ephesians 1:11) In Whom. Who is Whom? It is Jesus Christ. Much of what is said in these verses, however, is about God. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus ...

” In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” (Ephesians 1:7) In HIM we have redemption. Who is Him?  Jesus.

Ephesians Chapter 1 Part 2

Authored by revsuz on Mon, Jul 16 2012 - 12:31 AM

Ephesians 1, verse 3 told us we have every spiritual blessing God has created. We are made righteous in His sight by the Blood of Jesus, and all other spiritual blessings were added to us when we accepted the sacrifice He made. “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without ...

Ephesians Chapter 1 Part 1

Authored by revsuz on Fri, Jul 13 2012 - 11:56 AM

We saw in yesterday’s post that this book was not written for any specific problems being faced by the congregation at Ephesus, or its leaders, but to everyone there, and in the other churches. In Acts 20:29,30, when he returned from his third missionary journey, Paul warned the Ephesians at Miletus that men and women from among them would ...

Ephesians Introduction

Authored by revsuz on Thu, Jul 12 2012 - 09:00 AM

In my Spirit Filled NKJV Bible, it tells me that Ephesians is the epistle that “unveils” the mystery of the church like no other. It says there are three intentions in this book, and they are:  1-      To form a body that expresses Christ’s fullness on earth. (1:15-23). 2-     ...

My reading today discussed being re-routed.  Sometimes life re-routes us through road construction and plans changing.  Things like that.  Sometimes God re-routes us for whatever reason.  I believe it's possible that I may be in a re-routing at present.  The delay is inconvenient but, not permanent.  For right now I ...
