For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints… –Eph 1:15
Can this be said of me today? Is my faith evident in my life? Evident enough that people remark on it?
And my love? Does my love for all the saints show in my everyday life?
[I] do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers –Eph 1:16
Is this something I can say to others? Do I pray for other believers regularly, without ceasing? Or do I allow myself to become distracted… hurried… forgetful? Is it easy to toss up a perfunctory general prayer, planning to spend more time later…but later never comes?
Lord, teach us to pray –Luke 11:1
