Ephesians 6:9 | And now Admonition. 

You know it's hard sometimes. It's hard sometimes to be in charge of others and not show partiality, to not show respect of persons, to not place one person over someone else, simply because you like them better. But that's our responsibility, to live without partiality, to judge righteously. 

Paul writes to the church at Ephesus in Ephesians chapter six in verse nine, And you masters ...

Ephesians 6:9 | And now Admonition. 

In Ephesians chapter six, verse nine, we read, And you masters do the same things to them. What, what, what's he talking about? He's instructed the slaves. He's instructed the bondservants. You serve your master as if you're serving Christ. And now he says to these masters, the, these individuals who own other men, he says you do the same thing to them.

No matter the status of some...

Ephesians 6:7 | And now Admonition.?

Are you under-recognized? Do you go to work and you're there and you just wish your boss would recognize you for the job that you do? Paul writes in Ephesians chapter six, Knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.?

Paul makes it clear, no matter what your master, your boss, your employer might say about you in this life, God ...

Ephesians 6:7 | And now Admonition. 

One of the greatest struggles as a parent is to teach a child to do what's right, even when no one else is looking. Even when you're not watching them, even when you're not observing them, and they know you can't see them; they still need to be taught to do what's right, even then. Paul writes in Ephesians chapter five or chapter six and verse seven With goodwill doing service...

Ephesians 6:5 | And now Admonition.

How do you serve others? Specifically, how do you serve your employer or your master in life? Paul writes in Ephesians chapter six, and in verse five, Bondservants be obedient to those who are your masters, according to the flesh, verse six, not with eye service as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ doing the will of God from the heart. 

Serve them, not to be seen by them, but knowing that...

Ephesians 6:5 | And now Admonition. 

Can you be a slave and a free person all at the same time? Well, Paul says you can. Paul says in Ephesians chapter six and in verse five, Bondservants be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling and sincerity of heart, as to Christ. 

These Christians were free from death. They were free from the servitude of sin. They had become slaves to righteousness...

Ephesians 6:5 | And now Admonition. 

I'm free. How about you? As a Christian, I'm free. I am not a slave. I am not a bond servant. I am not encumbered or responsible to anyone to obey them over God. But as a Christian, I'm still a person and I still have a responsibility to live in this life in whatever place, position, or status I find myself. And as a Christian, I have a responsibility to serve those who are over me in...

Ephesians 6:2 | And now Admonition.

 At what age, should a father stop teaching his children? That's kind of a trick question because in Ephesians chapter six, we read in verse two that we are to honor our father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise. Then we read in verse four, And you fathers do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. 

Question? At what...

Ephesians 6:4 | And now Admonition.

 Fathers, how do you treat your children? I pray that you treat them in such a way to provoke them to love and to good works, and not to wrath. In Ephesians chapter six in verse four, we read, And you fathers do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.

We are to take our children and their lives, and we are to mold them and develop them into ...

Ephesians 6:1-3 | And now Admonition.

Are there consequences on this earth for the choices we make? Why, absolutely there are. One example of this is found in Ephesians chapter six, verses one through three. In Ephesians chapter six, verse one, Paul tells those who is he's writing to Children, obey your parents. Verse two, he says, Honor, your father and your mother.

And verse three, he says, That it may be well with you and that...

Ephesians 6:1 | And now Admonition.

 What does it mean to honor your father and your mother? In Ephesians chapter six, and in verse one, we read, Children, obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Verse two says, Honor, your father and your mother, which is the first commandment with promise. 

One of the examples of understanding this is given when Jesus tells the Jews, they were not honoring their parents as they ought, beca...

Ephesians 6:1 | And now Admonition.

 In Ephesians chapter six, and in verse one, Paul writes to the church at Ephesus and says, Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Children are to be expected to obey their parents, whenever their parents are instructing them in accordance with the word of God.

Ephesians 6:2 | And now Admonition. 

In Ephesians chapter six, and in verse two, we read, Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise. There is a promise attached to honoring, obeying, reverencing our parents. We owe them that honor because they were placed in that position by God. 

We need to make sure that our attitude toward our parents, whether we are children or aged, is what it ought to be. God exp...

And now admonition. 

There's a question in our society here in America, that's not a very favorable question. In Ephesians chapter five, you could ask the question, Do wives really have to submit to their husbands? Well, the answer's yes. Ephesians chapter five, verse 22 says wives submit to your own husbands as to the Lord. 

Paul says, when you submit, submit to your husband as if he is Christ, because that husband is th...

And now, Admonition.

 Paul calls upon us as Christians to be filled with the Spirit. And when we are, he says, one thing that you might find yourself doing is Ephesians chapter five verse 19, speaking to one another in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. 

When you can rejoice because you know, God is in you. You can be truly glad. For more from the Collierville church of Christ. ...

And now, Admonition.

 Who's the head of your church? I'm not talking about who stands up and preaches. I'm not talking about who's the one whose name is listed as an elder. I'm talking about who's the head of the church you claim to belong to. Because it could only be Christ, if it's going to be right before God. We read in Ephesians chapter five,

for the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is t...

And now, Admonition. 

What's wrong with getting drunk? What's wrong with just having a good time? One thing that I know is wrong with it is what we read in Ephesians chapter five. Ephesians chapter five, verse 17 and 18, therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is and do not be drunk with wine in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit. 

Paul says that when you're filled with alcoho...

And now, Admonition. 

What does it mean when Paul says in Ephesians chapter five verse 21, that we are to be submitting to one another in the fear of God? It means that we're going to take our correct role and function inside that role, as God has told us to. He will use that example to talk about wives being submissive to husband. He will use that example to talk about children being submissive to parents and servants being sub...

And now admonition. 

If you're a wife, do you have to submit to your husband? Well, the Bible says, yes. 

Well, the second question is, do you have to submit in everything? Ephesians chapter five, verse 24, therefore just as the church is subject to Christ. So let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. You only have to submit in all the same ways in which the church has to submit to Christ in everything For more from t...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
