Yesterday we returned to our ID: in Christ series in chapel, arriving at the last chapter in the book of Ephesians. Ephesians 6:1-9 continues the focus we started last week around relationships within households. Last week we explored the responsibilities for husbands and wives in a Christ-honoring relationship. Yesterday, we studied Paul’s instructions to parents and children and masters and slaves. In all of these relationships, God calls us to faithfully obey and exercise human authority in ways that glorify God.
- Children obey and honor your parents.
- Parents do not provoke but train your children.
- Slaves obey and respect their masters.
- Masters do not threaten and treat their slaves well.
