Ephesians Series • 22 “Be Strong in the Lord” Ephesians 6:10-13 In part one of this message, Elder Bryce describes the scope and strength of the power of God. It is an amazing blessing to know that, when we fight our spiritual battles from days to day, we have access to the power of God to help us fight off His enemies!
I challenge those that claim to have the power or means to cause the new birth to raise themselves from the dead three days later! Oh wait, they can't hear me!

Ephesians Series • 21 “Submission: Servants & Masters” 6:5-9 In part of this message, we will hear the conclusion of the responsibilities of employees to serve in their jobs as serving unto the Lord.

The leader should lead like Jesus and he should only expect as much obedience and diligence from his employees as he shows to Christ.
ple of salvation in time in the scriptures. Those that walk in obedience by faith enjoy the blessings of God. Those that do not walk by faith do not receive this blessing.
The truth of the matter is - faith is a gift from God. It is given to every child of God in the new birth whereby they are able to trust God and His word.
