Obedience is better than Sacrifice.

Paul wrote to the Ephesians about family values. He wrote about how the husband and wife are to treat each other. Then how children are to obey their parents. God says to tell people the truth in love. It’s the only way people respond. If you condemn them, they won’t listen. The church at Ephesus was like any church. It had problems that needed to be corrected. Paul talked about correcting problems in the family first, then how to deal with the world. He also talked about not fighting people, because they weren’t the problem. The problem is always spiritual. And that is where we do battle. He said that we are to pray always, asking God to correct all the problems. In reading Ephesians, I can see the problems they had and what it did to them. In 40 years that church lost everything. And the center of Christianity moved to Alexandria, Egypt. Reading, listening and doing the word of God is the only way to guarantee your success as a Christian. Otherwise you will lose everything you think you have. Read the word of God and listen to the Holy Ghost and do the word of God.
