Sit, Walk, Stand – Every Spiritual Blessing

One of the most fundamental things for a Christian to grasp is who they have become in Christ. We can easily see the benefits of being in Christ: eternal security through the forgiveness of sins, a relationship with the living God and the hope that sustains us through our earthy pilgrimage, but what is it that underpins it all?

We have been given ‘Every Spiritual Blessing’ to keep us and to help us to stand in a world which is very much at odds with us.

In this series on Ephesians, I will explore these spiritual blessings, the heavenly weapons we have to fight with and the reality of sitting, walking and standing in-Christ.

Left To Our Own Devices?

During the Covid19 lockdown period many of us had a lot of time on our hands. I don’t know about you but I made many plans to catch up on all the things I complain I don’t usually have the time to do. It’s surprising how difficult it can sometimes be to motivate ourselves to get on with things sometimes, we are creatures of habit… but there is hope – we are not left to our own devices!

Be Ready – God Equips the Called (2/5)

In my last article I tried to reassure us that when God calls a person to a specific work, the calling is unmistakeable. Notwithstanding this certainty, even once called we can still be plagued by a feeling of inadequacy: will we have the ability to carry out that which we have been called to do?
