True Spirituality is Relational Not Just Ritual
Paul’s Ministry in Ephesus Focused on the “Preaching” of the Gospel and the “Teaching” of the Word
Take This To Heart
As our Lord Jesus said: If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
Salvation and spiritual growth are relational not mechanical. The ministry of the Word calls for personal reception of truth in a way that is transformational (from the inside: priorities/convictions) not just informational (rote knowledge of facts about God).
The name of Jesus, literally His name “Iesous” (Greek) or “Jeshua” (Hebrew) or “Issa” (Arabic) or “Jesus” (Spanish) or “Jesus” (English) is what His name represents: His Person/Work. It is not a magic word that anyone can use to promote his/her personal agenda…and yet even the smallest child who truly believes can rest in Jesus; name
for time and eternity. “Whom have I in Heaven but You? “I am the resurrection and the life, the one who believes in Me will never (really) die, do you believe this?”
