Ephesians – 5

We need to be open and honest without judging. You can not fix a problem without acknowledging it exists. Honesty and truth open the door to redemption and life. Search out God’s job for you. Thank God for everything, even the little things and our lives will be changed. Submit yourselves to one another out of reverence for Christ – Eph5:21. In other words treat everyone as you would treat Jesus.
