Day 345: Ephesians 1:15-5:14
Q1. How do we avoid the deception in Ephesians 4:14?
A1. Ephesians 4:11-13; by pursuing spiritual maturity, we can avoid deceitful doctrines. This spiritual maturity comes by equipping the church and building it up with unity and knowledge.

Day 346: Ephesians 5:15-6:24; Philippians 1-2
Note1. Ephesians 6:10-13; we often think of unbelievers as our enemy in this world. These verses say something completely different. Our enemy is not flesh and blood, but spiritual forces of evil.
