Children and Parents

6Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lordc, for this is the right thing to do.G5043G5219G5216G1118G1722G2962G1063G5124G2076G13422"Honor your father and mother." This is the first commandment with a promise.G5091G4675G3962G2532G3384G3748G2076G4413G1785G1722G18603If you honor your father and mother, "things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth."cG2443G1096G2095G4671G2532G2071G3118G1909G10934Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.G2532G3962G3949G3361G5216G5043G3949G235G1625G846G1625G1722G3809G2532G3559G2962

Slaves and Masters

5Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.G1401G5219G2962G2596G4561G3326G5401G2532G5156G1722G572G5216G2588G5613G55476Try to please them all the time, not just when they are watching you. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart.G3361G2596G3787G5613G441G235G5613G1401G5547G4160G2307G2316G1537G55907Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.G3326G2133G1398G2962G2532G3756G4448Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free.G1492G3754G3739G1437G5100G18G1538G4160G5124G2865G3844G2962G1535G1401G1535G16589Masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Don't threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and he has no favorites.G2532G2962G4160G846G4314G846G447G547G1492G3754G5216G846G2962G2532G2076G1722G3772G2532G3756G2076G4382G3844G846

The Whole Armor of God

10A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.G3063G3450G80G1743G1722G2962G2532G1722G2904G846G247911Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.G1746G3833G2316G4314G5209G1410G2476G4314G3180G122812For wec are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.G3754G2254G3823G3756G2076G4314G4561G2532G129G235G4314G746G4314G1849G4314G2888G4655G5127G165G4314G4152G4189G1722G203213Therefore, put on every piece of God's armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.G1223G5124G353G3833G2316G2443G1410G436G1722G4190G2250G2532G2716G537G247614Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness.G2476G3767G4024G5216G3751G4024G1722G225G2532G1746G2382G134315For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.cG2532G4228G5265G1722G2091G2098G151516In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.cG1909G3956G353G2375G4102G1722G3739G1410G4570G3956G4448G956G419017Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.G2532G1209G4030G4992G2532G3162G4151G3603G4487G231618Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.cG4336G1722G2540G3956G1223G3956G4335G2532G1162G1722G4151G2532G69G1519G5124G846G1722G3956G4343G2532G1162G4012G3956G4019And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God's mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.cG2532G5228G1700G2443G3056G1325G3427G1722G457G3450G4750G1722G3954G1107G3466G209820I am in chains now, still preaching this message as God's ambassador. So pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for him, as I should.G5228G3739G4243G1722G254G2443G1722G846G3955G5613G3165G1163G2980
