Journey Through Ephesians, #25
God impacts every relationship. Paul has Sharon about the relationship between a husband and a wife, now he shares about all the other relationships that we can be part of. Read Ephesians 6:1-9.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you , and that you may live long on the earth . Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
Ephesians 6:1-9 NASB
Regardless of how we are connected to another person, we should demonstrate Christ to them. They should see Christ in her life and in her heart and her actions and interactions with each individual we come into contact with. Does Christ rule over our hearts? Is Christ evident in the way we interact and react to people?
