Devotional: A Strong Church
Paul’s exhortation in Ephesians 1 serves as a timeless reminder for the church today. To be a strong church, we need to understand and embrace the spiritual blessings we have received in Christ. This knowledge should fuel our faith and empower us to live a life that reflects our new identity. We must seek unity, rejecting division and embracing the diversity within the body of believers. By cultivating a spirit of humility, gentleness, and love, we can create an environment where every member feels valued and encouraged to grow in their relationship with God. Let us heed Paul’s words and strive to be a church that shines with the transformative power of the gospel, drawing others to Christ and bringing glory to God.
