Do you ever wonder what the will of God is for your life? Paul tells you to 'understand what the will of the Lord is'…do you?

God calls us to live a life that makes sense in light of who we are in Christ. In this passage in Ephesians 5 & 6, God gives us some examples of what that life looks like practically in some of the various relationships we all find ourselves in. The key to living Christlike lives in these areas (and in all of life) is being filled by the Spirit with "the fullness of Christ" or the Christlikeness that is spiritual maturity. As we grow, we are transformed, and every one of our relationships is transformed as well.
