Resources from Stewardship Sunday

We began considering these two verses last week and we saw there are four themes. The first two we looked at last time were the divine priority - that is to say, for Paul, God is first. He wants God to be first in the lives of the Ephesian Christians and he wants God to be first in our lives. So he's writing, "to Him, to Him be...
