One

Today’s passage: Ephesians 2:11-22 The gospel of Jesus Christ is amazingly simple. Mostly, religion is about proving ourselves worthy of God. It’s about living an upright, moral life. It’s about attaining a standard of life that is superior to the majority of others. It’s about being able to say that we have harshly disciplined ourselves, and that we have attained a level of perfection that is “good enough” for God.

God values families. The first commandment that comes with a blessing is one that involves our families. Time and…
