Today’s reading is Ephesians 3-4.

What a prayer! What a desire! What a victory! How can we lose this battle when we are strengthened with power through his Spirit in our inner being? How can we lose this battle when Christ dwells in our hearts by faith? How can we lose this battle when we are filled with all the fullness of God? We can’t. God is able to do far more abundantly that all we ask or think through His power in us. So that just leaves us with one question today. What am I going to fill myself with today?

Tomorrow’s reading is Ephesians 5-6.

A Word for Our Kids

Hey kids, the devil is a liar and the father of all lies. No wonder Paul explains that we are to speak the truth to our neighbors. Even as a child, the devil will tempt you to fudge the facts, stretch the truth, avoid admission. He will tempt you to lie. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if one of the first sins for every person alive is lying. It is, after all, the father of lies favorite sin. Of course, when you realize you are a sinner, turn to Jesus. But I also want to encourage you to turn to the truth. Don’t let Satan lead you down the primrose path of lying no matter how much easier you think it will make your life. Tell the truth, always.
