An Epistle from #LaTeamHarmony to #TheLAFamily as a review of the book of Ephesians
We, the members of #LaTeamHarmony by the will of God, to you; the saints in TheLAFamily and to all the Christian faithful. May peace and Harmony from God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
We exalt our God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us abundantly before and during our journey of #LA130. Having chosen and loved us even before the foundation of the earth by adopting us as His children according to His will and good pleasure through His son Jesus Christ in whom we are saved through His blood; the forgiveness of our sins according to his riches in grace. In whom also, having heard the word of truth and light and believed in our hearts are sealed with the holy spirit of his promise.
We continually give praise to our God the father of our lord Jesus Christ on your behalf, hearing of all your good deeds in your various teams. We pray that God grant you all the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. To enlighten the eyes of your understanding to see the things others do not see.
We pray that God grant us all the grace and strength to forsake the past ways. He having loved us even when we are dead in sin and had made us sit together with Christ in heavenly places through faith in his grace. For through Him, we all have access by one spirit into the father.
Now therefore, we are no more strangers and foreigners but partakers in The LA Family which is a household of God with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; in whom we also are built together for an inhabitation of God through the spirit.
Having opened our eyes to the mystery of the word; Christ, which was not made known to other ages. We are now ministers according to the gift of the grace of God given to us by effectual working of his power.
We pray that we faint not at tribulations; that He would grant us according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with the might by his spirit in the inner man. That Christ may dwell in our hearts by faith that we being rooted and grounded in love will be able to understand the mystery of Christ.
We therefore beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation where with we are called with all lowliness And meekness with long suffering, forbearing one another in love. Endearing to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of harmony.
Walk not therefore as others do; they being still in the corrupt old man living according to the lust of their flesh and deceit. But let us be renewed in our spirits and mind that we may put on the new man. Abstaining from all uncleanness, formication or covetousness. Let these not be associated with us as we are now saints in Christ Jesus, knowing in our hearts that no partakers of uncleanness shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Let no man deceive you so that the wrath of God shall not come upon us. Walk you as children of light, having no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness.
Let us not live as men pleasers but as servants of Christ doing the will of God from the heart. Finally brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might putting on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
May the peace and HARMONY that comes from God the father of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen.
