“Just follow God’s order and the LORD will bless you.” These are the words that lingered in my mind. An encouragement and an exhortation to me. And I thank God for allowing me to learn more about the Authority of God, which is the only authority that never errs and got gleanings from the book of Ephesians.
The book of Ephesians is a blessing and will be my guide. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalms 119:105. Praise God for these treasures.
A very practical application for me from Ephesians 5:22-6:9 is one of the six human relationships which is for the children. As a daughter, I’ll just follow God’s order: “Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with a promise;” And been reminded that Obedience is to be immediate.
One of the important things that I should also remember is that “The relationship of a man and woman is a picture and practical demonstration of the truth between Christ and the church which is his body: Christ is the head of the church and He is the Saviour of the body. Christ also loved the church gave himself for it. And the church is subject unto Christ. I thank the Lord for the very specific God-given mandates: Wives –Submit; Husbands – Love; Children – Obey; Father – Bring up; Servants – Obey; Masters – Forbear.
I really thank and praise the Lord Jesus Christ for giving Himself for me and for His great love for me and for being my Saviour. And these motivates me to follow God’s order and the Lord will bless me. Glory to God.
