You are the living example of God’s kindness
Joshua 19 /Proverbs 11 /Ephesians 1-3

Tutorial for first-timers


OT
Joshua 19:51 These are the territories that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the tribal leaders gave as an inheritance to the tribes of Israel by casting sacred lots in the presence of the LORD at the entrance of the Tabernacle at Shiloh. So the division of the land was completed.

Proverbs 11:24-25 It is possible to give freely and become more wealthy, but those who are stingy will lose everything. The generous prosper and are satisfied; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

NT

2:7 And so God can always point to us as examples of the incredible wealth of his favor and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us through Christ Jesus.

3:10-11 God’s purpose was to show his wisdom in all its rich variety to all the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms. They will see this when Jews and Gentiles are joined together in his church. This was his plan from all eternity, and it has now been carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.

No longer any separation

Now you have the power to understand and experience the love of Christ, to be filled with the “fullness of the life and power that comes from God”


Perspective

Absolutes, origin, essence
Christ, New Testament, Imorality/Holiness
God puts the disposition of Jesus in me and I belong to a new order spiritually
