"to be made new in the attitude of your minds"

circumstances can rob us of our security, and joy.

"renew my strength, restore my joy, and dry my weeping eyes"

"now faith is being certain of what we do not see"

Everybody have a good day

"Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

Ephesians 4:25-28

Hmmmm, my post, posted much later than Doug's, appears before his.

I guess someone wants us reading Ephesians right now and not Romans...

Looks like it has something to do with a warp in the space-time continuum.

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Epehsians 4:29=32

I'm constantly amazed at the way God blesses us through the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of others, at just the right time, just when we need it the most. We need to remember this when times seem dark and troublesome. We need to reach out to others when we struggle, and be there for others when they reach out to us. God always gives us what we need, when we need it, and wants us to know that he is our provider, our strength, our refuge, our shelter from the storm. Always.

"Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them. "

Ephesians 5:1-7

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

Ephesians 5:8-13

"Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:15-20

I love this verse within the context of Ephesians 5:

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Ephesians 5:21-33

how utterly and disgustingly lost I get when I take my eyes off Jesus.

I take those first few steps of faith, take my eyes off him...and off to drowning I go.

It makes me sick to think that in my times of weakness I can fall to such depths.

I'm making a new committment. Right here, right now.

One of the best sermons I ever heard was based on these verses in Ephesians 5, this was years ago and I hear it like it was yesterday, he said "Dads, the most important thing you can do for you kids is to love their mother" ......... very important indeed.

"Blessed are you "piacere", for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven" Matt 16:17

amazing how one sentence can edify and encourage someone.

Thanks Nancy.

I have a number of devotionals, not one, I have to admit, have I opened in the past year or so."Destined to Reign" by Joseph Prince, "Six Battles Every Man Must Win" by Bill Perkins, "My Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers and my favorite, "Power Prayers for Men" by John Tiner, to name but a few.
So I go out for a ride tonight, had the Allman's playin' and I got so disgusted with the way I've been the past few days that I drove home and opened one of them to help me along in my new committment. I opened the "Destined to Reign" devotional to a random page and it was the devotional for August 2, " Don't be Judgment-Focused".

Now, many will interpret that as a random occurence, a coincidence, if you will ( there are no coincidences, only God's will..[DougMacKenzie] ) but I see it as God saying, " I know where your heart has been the last few days Mark. Here, read this".

A rather fine way to get me back on the path, wouldn't you say?

God is so patient and understanding and through Christ, does not hold our transgressions and sins against us.

Thank you Jesus.

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."

Ephesians 6:1-4

The only basis on which God can forgive us is the tremendous tragedy of the Cross of Christ. To base our forgiveness on any other ground is unconscious blasphemy. The only ground on which God can forgive our sin and reinstate us to His favor is through Christ and the cost of the cross.

"Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.
And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him. "

Ephesians 6:5-9
