A humbled and open heart is fertile soil for God’s seeds of wisdom to be planted. Deeper Roots is focused on analyzing God’s word to discover truths, values, and lessons for application to our lives. Periodically, a scripture or passage calls for further exploration, like the book of Ephesians.
This month, we are exploring the entire book of Ephesians in our Walk as Children of Light – Online Bible Study. It is not too late to join us – Walk as Children of Light.
Here’s an excerpt from Day 4.
Day 4 – Chapter 1:6-8
God’s grace alone is enough for us to praise His name, but He has done more than just cover us with grace. God has redeemed us. When we see the word redemption, it means to ‘buy back.’ It’s a release from slavery; someone or something has been set free. God has paid the ultimate price of Jesus’ blood, for our freedom from sin. When we begin to grasp how much God loves us by sending His son, Jesus Christ, to forgive us of our sins, we begin to act differently and share that good news with the world.
- Read verses 6-8.
- How do you honor the sacrifice that was made for your redemption? Do your actions demonstrate that Jesus Christ released you from the chains of sin?
