References: Ephesians 6

Armor of God, The (Ephesians 6:10-24)

The book of Ephesians is filled with almost unbelievable descriptions of spiritual power that is available to believers. And at the end of the book we are reminded that all this power is not a novelty, or something for the Christians superstars, or some level of Christian living that is only needed for certain people. Every one of us is a soldier in a war, and every one of us must find a way to gain as much access to this power as possible, or we will become casualty in the warfare.

A Daily Journey Through The Attributes of God

What’s so Great About God?

It is not enough to learn true things about God.

It is not even enough to experience the benefits of His attributes. We must not be satisfied until our experience of each attribute has been profound enough to move our soul toward deeper love for God.

We must keep learning and experiencing what is so wonderful about each attribute until there is a response in our affections -sparks of actual joy, peace, delight, awe, fear of God, security, satisfaction of soul, comfort, courage, and all the other benefits

Scripture promises will come from the nearness of God’s favorable presence. Each one of God’s attributes is a single ray in the spectrum of the brilliant radiance of His glory. That glory is an ocean, and just one drop of that ocean, if you could just see it clearly, would be enough to delight your soul and occupy your faculties of praise for all eternity.

This book is a journal of how God has been opening my eyes the past few years to begin to see a glimpse of that drop.
