My father-in-law writes a monthly newsletter for Community Christian Ministries, and I thought I would share the contents of his July issue. He called it “an open-book assignment.” Here it goes.
1. Read chapters 1 through 3 of Ephesians several times, listing everything that the believer has in Christ. Thank God for each of them.
2. Do the same thing with Colossians 1 and 2.
3. After you are fortified with all of this wonderful truth and are rejoicing in it, then read Ephesians 4-6 and list all of the commands.
4. Repeat with Colossianss 3-4.
You will find that the commands are not impossible because of where you are in Christ.
