We had a wonderful time at our women’s breakfast this past Saturday, despite the threat of snow! Meghan Mellinger shared a message on being women of the whole Word, and it is well worth listening to if you missed it. Our next breakfast is scheduled for April 18th, 2020.
In the last post, we saw that our old selves are full of deceitful desires and need to be slung off like a dirty old shirt. Our new selves are to reflect the image of Christ in righteousness and holiness (a much more attractive look). According to Ephesians 4:20-24, it sounds like we have the job of putting them on. But how?
Ephesians 4 is changing my life. It sounds like Christian clickbait, but it’s not. More accurate wording would be that God is changing my life through his living and active word, that he promises to do that all over the place in the Bible, and that it shouldn’t be big news in my life. But I’m a stubborn sinner, so it is. If you’re like me in that, let’s talk.
For most of my life, during most of my waking hours, my time has been consumed by the activities and needs of the moment: those things that were determined for me merely by my stage of life.
When I was a student, I went to school and participated in school-related activities. As a new wife, I worked both in and outside the home and invested myself in helping to build a solid foundation in our marriage. Then came parenthood and years of caring for little ones, balancing the various roles and challenges that life as a family necessitated.
We want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones. We hope you all enjoy this time gathering together with those you love and celebrating the birth of Christ. We are taking the next two weeks off from posting and will be back the first week in January. Come back and see us in 2020! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Together Blog.
