A Really Scary Story. In the book of Ephesians, the Apostle Paul tells us of a really scary situation for us. In Ephesians 2:11-12, we are told that we are considered to be uncircumcised, without Christ, aliens from Israel, strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God. This sounds really bad! What does all this mean! Why is circumcision important? When was I without Christ? Should I become Jewish? What covenants of promise were made? I would think I have hope, but in what? I really would like to have God on my side, isn’t he? The lesson on October 26, 2008 covers these questions and in the end, turns a scary story into a real blessing! As Paul stated in verse 13 of Ephesians 2 “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” This lesson briefly discusses Halloween and refers to a previous lesson entitled “Should Halloween be Hallowed?”.
