The purpose of the commandment

It is quite laughable to me that we could think that Paul is referring here to the old testament commandments producing these things in verse five. But so many in the church of Jesus Christ teach exactly that. They take this one verse out of it’s context because they see the word “commandment” and link it back to old testament law.

He Himself is our peace

We can make the simple choice to believe His word right here at this point. IN the midst of raging emotions and contrary circumstances you can simply stand on His promise stated clearly right here in Ephesians 2 and DECLARE OUT LOUD that I am brought near to God right now despite what my eyes, ears and emotions are telling me.

That missing ingredient I want to share is faith. And as I say to my wife faith is never divorced from words. If we believe we shall speak! In fact whatever we believe we shall speak of it. That may be good or bad for us.

Our lives can sometimes seem to swing so far from the centre that we get terrified and lose all hope of finding our way back again.  We are all different and I don’t pretend to know why other people swing out wide on their particular journey. But I believe that God has all of our ups and downs in Him

Don’t agree with the Accuser

It is the Accusers job to accuse us- It is up to us to refuse to agree with him. The most ferocious battle you will ever encounter I believe, is against the Accuser of the brethren for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
