Ephesians, Chapter Six, Lesson Four

THE SPIRIT FILLED LIFE - Part 9            Page 6
V.24 (Cont'd.)

** Is Paul calling for a superficial show of affection for Christ that occasionally manifests itself on Sundays, as long as our personal agendas aren't disrupted?

God forbid - What Paul is calling for is a love that cannot be corrupted by a love for the world. This is a "Jesus First" kind of love! The same kind God showed toward us from before the foundation of the world. cf. Ephesians 1:3-6

EXTRICATE

** It is my prayer that our time together over the past six months in this book has been of great value to your life as a Christian. What connection have we seen today between prayer and concern for others?

As I am specifically aware of others' needs, my faithful prayer life builds a loving concern in my heart for them.

DELINEATE

** Who did we meet today and what about his life could we emulate?

Our beloved brother Tychicus - who was a faithful servant and willing to be dispatched by Paul for the glory of God. He was expendable for Christ!

EVALUATE

** How much time do I presently give to prayer and concern for others as it compares to the time spent for myself? What benefit can my fellow Christians derive if I am faithful in these two areas?

ACTIVATE

** Can we close our study of Ephesians with a commitment to be prayerfully concerned for others and to be faithful to share the mystery of the gospel? In doing that we will certainly be living "The Spirit Filled Life".

May our gracious God help us to walk in a manner worthy of our calling, doing the will of God from the heart!
