What women are saying about this study:
This January we started “Seek the Treasure” on Ephesians … knowing that this was a very basic way to look at Ephesians. I can’t tell you the depth of the conversations we have had about the truths in the book of Ephesians and how these gems…these jewels…have affected our lives and our journey with our God. Every week someone says they are so glad that I chose this study even though it is very basic for us…yet could be so powerful for those who have not delved into His Word as we have. It definitely has strengthened our faith and challenged us to be women who put their words into action to show others the love and grace of Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for this study and the others you offer. (Barb)
I’ve read the book of Ephesians several times before, but I learned so much more from studying it this time around. God has gifted you with a gentle and humble way of teaching and leading that makes God’s word so much easier to understand and grasp. I love how it felt like you took us all by the hand and pointed out where to find truth and the answers to each question by referencing the verse to look back at. I pray God will continue the work He started in me to completion. (Tamela)
My Sunday School class really enjoyed the Knowing Jesus…Knowing Joy! study. So, we are going to do this new study of Ephesians in January. Looking forward to it. (Barbara)

There may be evil spiritual forces behind the people, the habits, and the situations that are messing up your life. But, the answer is not to try out everything available to see if something sticks. The answer is found in what Jesus already provides to you in Himself. In Ephesians, Paul writes to give us confidence that Jesus is more powerful and effective than anything we can substitute for Him.
The Bible teaches that Jesus is sitting at the right of God with authority over everything. What is not included in everything? Evil is under His feet. As we sit with Him, evil is under our feet. All we have to do is remember our place with Him in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). That’s where God dwells. And, it’s a place of power. Jesus has more power than anything we picture coming against us.
We can picture ourselves sitting with Jesus in the heavenly realms, with our treasure chest-all that we receive in Him. It’s not about something we do. It’s something that has already been done. We can rest in that and all the treasure that comes with it. That’s the way to guarantee successful living-God’s way of successful living. The treasure you have in Jesus Christ is more powerful and effective than anything you could substitute for Him.
All you need is what is already given to you in Jesus Christ. Are you willing to get rid of your substitutes and cling to your treasure in Christ alone? Not just in your head, but in your heart and experiences. You can say with your heart to Him, “My treasure in you, Lord Jesus, is more powerful and effective than anything I could substitute for You. Please confirm that in my heart.”
