God Gives Life

I’m always amazed at how fast things can go bad for a person when they chose to live for themselves (myself included).  That’s why I want to pay special attention to today’s Bible verse:

BVD - God Gives Life 1

God Gives Life

As Paul is speaking to the church at Ephesus, he shares with them a simple compare and contrast.  Live for yourself and you will end up living a very confusing life.  However, if you live life by God’s principles you will have life!  I know and I have experienced times in life that are very dark and confusing – and the only one I really have to blame is myself (my pursuit of selfish living).  Yet, when I submit to the biblical principles of God I find that my life has order, direction and clarity.

Talk About It

  1. Have you had confusing times in your life life?  Where was you walk with Christ during those times (did you feel close or distant to God)?
  2. How have you seen God’s biblical principles bring LIFE to your life?
  3. What would you share with someone who is living for self (selfishness) that might help them to change course?
