Recent Devotionals

Ephesians – Prayer

Read Ephesians 1:15-18

I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly – Ephesians 1:16 (NLT)

Life is a daily struggle against sin, death, and the devil. Therefore Paul highlights the importance of prayer. Prayer can fill our souls with God’s light, so that it spills out into the lives of all those around us, whether other Christians who need God’s strength, or unbelievers who need God’s forgiveness.

Ephesians – God’s Purpose

Read Ephesians 1:12-14

And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. Ephesians 1:13b (NLT)

God’s purpose is that we will praise and glorify Him. The devil is constantly trying to get us to doubt our salvation, but there are markers of people who are living by grace through faith. As we see God using our lives to bear testimony to His name, we can know that our lives are bringing praise to Him.
