Ephesians Series • 23. Loins Girt About With Truth Ephesians 6:14a (October 18, 2020) The pandemic, upheaval in local and federal government, and riots in the streets of America's largest cities shows that we are definitely enduring a battle with the forces of darkness in high places. Through all of this turmoil, many are claiming to speak the truth and persuade the masses to follow them. In today's message, Elder Bryce reminds us that what the Bible says is true.

The leader should lead like Jesus and he should only expect as much obedience and diligence from his employees as he shows to Christ.
Ephesians Series • 21 “Submission: Servants & Masters” 6:5-9 As Paul continues to describe our duty to submit to one another as unto Christ, he deals with the servant and master relationship. This is not an endorsement of slavery or the slave-trade. Paul is dealing with an historical fact of bond-servitude that was used to pay off debts or other charges. The equivalent today is the relationship between boss and employee.
