True believers must live out God's life

In Ephesians, the Holy Spirit, in and through Paul, reveals what Jesus Christ did for every believer. Every faithful believer has life only in Jesus Christ, meaning believers live and act in the Lord's sphere. Believers have unions with Christ, fellowship with Him, relationships with Him and they are intimate with Him. Believers are in love with Jesus Christ and they fall more in love with Him daily.

God is infinite in power, love, justice

What a spectacle of God's power must have been shown during the days of creation – the shifting of the land masses, the forming of the seas and water ways, the great lights set to rule day and night to control the seasons and the years as the great designer made a world that was ready for man to inhabit; the plant and animal life formed and given to man to have dominion over them (Gen. 1:28, 29).

Do you want to follow God or follow idols?

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Against such, there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another" (Galatians 5:13-25).

We must be forgiving servants in obeying God
