“Do your best 

to present yourself to God

as one approved, a worker

who does not need to be ashamed

and who correctly handles 

the word of truth.”

 Philippians 1:6 NIV - being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

 

Ephesians 1:18-20 NIV - I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, [19] and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength [20] he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms…

 

Philippians 3:12-14 NIV - Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. [13] Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, [14] I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

GIVE YOUR BEST TO GOD!!!

Paul calls Timothy to “do your best to present yourself to God as one approved”.

Many people in our world do their best to get the approval of others through the way they dress, the things they do and the things that they post on social media. They look for likes, compliments, and approval.

But, Paul says do your best to present yourself to God, living for the audience of one – God, the one who judges the living and the dead. God’s approval is the only one that matters.

And, if we live for God’s approval, our lives will shine.  Some may disapprove and others will approve and some may be caused to look to God for themselves. 

God has given us his word and His Holy Spirit to help us to live for him as Children of God who correctly handle the Word of Truth – God’s Word.  Our part is to give our best at studying God’s Word so we know what it says and our best to living it out. Sure, our understanding can be limited.  We all have our questions but as we walk with God with the understanding that we have so far, he will continue to guide us that we may reflect more of his likeness into the world for his glory!

In word and deed,

Give God Your Best!

    EPHESIANS

    In our Lifegroup we have started to study our way through the book of Ephesians.  Paul wrote it to strengthen the believers in their faith by explaining the nature and purpose of the church – the body of Christ.  He wrote it that they may understand and appreciate the greatness of God’s eternal purpose and grace for the church, that His people may glorify God as His Body, temple, mystery, new man, bride & soldiers.  Paul writes and prays that we would know and understand fully who we are in Christ, the new life in Christ that impacts every area of our lives, and the armour for the fight.

    He outlines how we are :- showered with God’s kindness (1:3-8), chosen for greatness (1:9-12), marked with the Holy Spirit (1:13-14), filled with the Spirits power (1:15-23), freed from sins curse and bondage (2:1-10), brought near to God (2:11-18) and part of God’s household (2:19-3:13).

    He speaks about the importance of unity, commitment, maturity, purity, and the highest moral standards, Explaining that we should reject pagan practices and hold a mutual submission and love one for another. He rounds off detailing the spiritual battle & weapons that we are in and victory over the evil one.

    One author ‘Stuart Olyott’ writes in the Preface of his commentary on Ephesians:

    “When a Christian begins to understand Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians, something wonderful happens to his spiritual life.  Realizing how rich he is in Christ, he becomes filled with thankfulness and joy.  He never envies non-Christians again.  He sees what it means to live as a Christian in today’s world.  He becomes stable in his doctrinal understanding.  In short, Ephesians produces exactly the sort of Christians we most need.”

    (Ephesians Alive in Christ by Stuart Olyott)

    I’m sure we all want to know, experience, enjoy and share all that we have in Christ. So join us in looking at  Ephesians.  Don’t just read it.  Take every morsel of truth and chew on it. Think it through… What does it really mean? What does it mean to us as individuals and as a church? 

    And as we digest the truths that it declares may we be inspired and filled with thankfulness and joy.

    Join us in praying the prayers of Ephesians 1:17-20 & 3:16-21 over one another’s lives and live to see it fulfilled in our own lives and the lives of all at Lifewell Church.
