Ephesians #16

Ephesians #16

We need to see Jesus Christ character in order to become like Him -- to "walk worthy of our calling" (Eph 4:1-2). Mat 11:25-29 you have to become a child to believe the truth -- totally depend upon Him. "Take my yoke" - school of learning - "for I am gentle and humble in heart". Mat 12:19 He didn't quarrel nor cry out. Eph 4:1-32 is a school intended to reflect Christ's character; Eph 4:2 illustrates. "lowly" means dependent; "gentleness" refers to power under control; "long-suffering" means to have a short fuse. Luk 1:46-55 Mary expresses this character while speaking of the coming Savior.
