Ephesians 3:10 His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms
The body of Christ is the only thing that can win the war against poverty. The government is not the answer. It is us.
Only the church can win the war against drugs. Only the church can win the war against divorce and family breakdown. Only the church can win the war against violence and murder. Only the church can win the war against mental illness.
The manifold wisdom of God revealed to the church is the answer.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s own handiwork His workmanship, recreated in Christ Jesus, born anew that we may do those good works which God predestined planned beforehand for us taking paths which He prepared ahead of time, that we should walk in them living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live.
Time to walk in the new things He has predestined for us.
Galatians 6:10 So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good morally to all people not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith those who belong to God’s family with you, the believers.
Do good and be profitable when the occasion comes.
Ephesians 4:12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints His consecrated people, that they should do the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body the church.
He continues to equip us for ministry.
