Quick Devotional from Ephesians 1:7 (Observation from the Greek)

The Domain for Truth

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few weeks ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is Ephesians 1:7. Here’s my translation:

“SENTENCE 7 [CR ἐν CR] ᾧ ἔχομεν τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν διὰ τοῦ αἵματος αὐτοῦ ‹ τὴν
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the

ἄφεσιν τῶν παραπτωμάτων › κατὰ τὸ πλοῦτος τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ”
forgiveness of our transgressions according to the riches of His grace

Here’s some observation:

He Is Greater

Pic quote John 3 v 30

Hello everyone!  My kids had Friday off and they have today off too, so we have been enjoying the long 4 day weekend.  I have been doing a lot of thinking and praying the last few days.  I always do, but I have been struggling with some things the last few days.  The longer I walk with Jesus the more I realize that it’s not about me and it’s all about Him.  He gives us gifts that we are to use for His glory to build His Kingdom.  The spiritual gifts He gives us are not ours to keep to ourselves.  Just like John the Baptist said, we must become less as Jesus becomes greater in our lives.  We must let Him work in us as He sees fit.  He is the potter and we are the clay.  Following Jesus is a daily, even moment by moment, surrender of yourself…

God’s Refrigerator 

Lift Up Your Eyes!

(The story that goes with the picture is worth reading.)

God’s refrigerator has to be huge, to have all our photos and papers on it. On earth, the photos and stick-men artwork displayed on refrigerators and bulletin boards around the house serve two main purposes. For the parents, in quiet, reflective moments, these mementos launch us into thoughts about the very unique person or persons it is our privilege to get to know, somewhat, as they learn and grow. For me, some of the biggest inward smiles came after the storm had calmed of behavior that left no doubt in my mind of why it is said that some species eat their young. My children were determined to be themselves. They are, and that’s the way it should be. The pictures and art around the house helped me treasure and cultivate their uniqueness. I have moved many times in…

God’s Recipe for His Church

Where Living Begins

My wife attended a cookie exchange party at the home of a co-worker. Each lady baked two dozen cookies and brought them to the party. There were a wide variety of cookies to sample and even more for her to bring home for her husband. Yum!!!

Kimberly baked and took Snickerdoodles. Here’s the recipe:


  • 1/2 cup softened, unsalted sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Once the ingredients are mixed, roll the dough into small 1-inch balls and coat in an equal mixture of ground cinnamon and sugar. Bake 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.

Now suppose Kim substituted two watermelons instead of two eggs. Would she still have had Snickerdoodle cookies? What if, rather than substitute, Kim added 2 pounds of onions or left out the flour. Snickerdoodles?
