Wonderful song….
Seasplit

Please listen to this wonderful video which we listened to yesterday at church. John writes: I think this song, and this video is absolutely wonderful, and I was greatly blessed in hearing it yesterday morning. It got to me right from the start, with that wonderful image ‘you unravel me with a melody.’ Here we are mixed up like fankled wool and God heals and restores not with rough fingers but a melody, a sweetness, a loveliness which heals.

Light and darkness – personal thought from John
John at Scone

I want to say firstly how helpful this picture of the ‘armour of God’ can be, and secondly that it can helpfully be combined with another way of looking at our struggles as Christians. Ephesians 6:10-20 emphasises that the struggle we face with doubt, temptation, fear, anxiety, defeatism is part of a universal conflict between light and darkness. We are called to remember this, and to take our stand on what God, through Jesus has done to help

Donald Macquarrie preaches on the Armour of God
Donald2

A report on Donald's sermon Knowing that he was going to be preaching on Ephesians 6:10-20 last Sunday, Donald Macquarrie had re-read the whole book of Ephesians over the last few weeks. Once again he was, he told us, ‘blown away’ by the wonders it contains. As he wrote it, St Paul’s heart was bubbling over at God’s great plan to send Jesus to show how much God loves us, and to die on our behalf so that our sins can be forgiven. It is God’s

Lion 4

Ephesians 6:10-20 The armour of God 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that

Personal thoughts from John on Ephesians 4:1-16
John at Scone

What struck me particularly in Ephesians 4 was the comment in verse 10 that Jesus will fill ‘the whole universe.’ This relates to 1:9, 10, which speaks of ‘the mystery of [God’s] will’,  ‘to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfilment – to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.’ There a big vision here – a vision of Christ, being present in, and uniting the whole of the cosmos. This is the

All one in Christ Jesus: Duncans thoughts on unity and maturity from Ephesians 4

‘It’s a marvellous book, with some wonderful passages in it,’ Duncan said. The passage he was preaching on this morning was St Paul’s letter to the Ephesians 4:1-16, and he had chosen to emphasise two of the key words in this passage: ‘Unity’ (v3) : we see many examples of disunity in church, politics and society. What does the unity St Paul writes so eloquently about look like? ‘Maturity’ (v13): what does it mean to be a ‘mature’

Love builds up

Ephesians 4:1-16 Unity and maturity in the body of Christ 4 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
