|In our first Bible Focus we invite you to consider Ephesians 1:3-14 by answering the four questions we have posed.
As in all the practical exercises we offer in Confidence in the Word, we strongly recommend that you not only read, but also transcribe the passage of Scripture on which this Focus is based. But before you begin you may like to remind yourself about our 3-R's of Approaching the Bible.
We now invite you to answer the following four questions. All the answers can be found within the passage of Scripture itself. Where we have referred to other scriptures, this is either to confirm or to amplify what is said in a certain verse, or verses.
What is the inheritance all Christians have received because of Christ?
A Personal Application
Have you heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you and received the Holy Spirit (verse 13)?
For Prayer & Meditation
Re-read the whole passage, this time personalising it as your own testimony and act of thanksgiving to God the Father for all the blessings he has given you through the Lord Jesus Christ:
|We do hope you have been helped by this first Bible Focus to increase still further your growing Confidence in the Word, and that it has given you a deeper appreciation of the wonderful things God has done - and has yet to do - for us through the Lord Jesus Christ.
What God has done for us demands that we respond by living as he requires. Our next Focus, which is also taken from the apostle Paul's letter to the Ephesians, therefore deals with some important aspects of what constitutes an authentically Christian Lifestyle.
