We’ve come to the end of our series on the book of Ephesians, but we’re not through yet. The last chapter of Ephesians contains a little segment that is popular with Sunday school teachers: the good ole’ “armor of God”. What I find interesting and entertaining about this passage is how we’ve seemed to make... Continue Reading →
Last time we talked about the book of Ephesians, we talked about the directive in chapter 4 to “live a life worthy of the calling you have received”.
