Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10

Paul now comes to the closing thoughts of the epistle. This is evidenced by the word “Finally.” He has presented an amazing display of the wonder of the work of Christ and how it pertains to His redeemed, but he wants them to not forget that there is still an on-going battle which is being waged.… Read the rest

…with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, Ephesians 6:7

Again, context needs to be maintained in order to see the progression of Paul’s thoughts –

“Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men…”

This verse continues to explain what was introduced in verse 5. Taken together they read –

“Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart…”

Paul is asking that bondservants be obedient “not with eyeservice.”… Read the rest
