I am confident that as we end our study of Ephesians today that you are BECOMING more like Jesus! I am confident that your life has been changed with the rich depth from the book of Ephesians! Be sure to declare the word of God over your life, over your husband, over your children, and over your battles. Choose to worship, choose to have joy, and choose to stand firm! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. Thank you for joining me here for this life-changing study from the book of Ephesians!
Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio! Are you ready for war? Would you ever walk onto the battle field without your armor? I think not! The odd thing is, the enemy for your soul wants you to go into battle ill-equipped and unprepared for battle. We are commanded to take up the FULL armor of God. We cannot afford to leave one single piece off. To resist the devil, you must take up what the Holy Spirit has provided to do battle confidently. Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. Are you ready to fight well?
What battle are you facing today? Whatever your battle is right now, the old devil is trying to trick you into a place of weakness rather than a place of strength in the Lord. All through scripture we know that God’s people have learned how to stand firm against the attacks of the enemy. God will do a miracle before your very eyes! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio! I am Carol McLeod, your host! Stand firm my friends, in Christ you have already won the battle!
As with any great book … there is an end. In the next few days we are ending our study from the book of Ephesians. Don’t let this discourage you though because Paul has saved one knock out ending! BE STRONG! Paul says, most important of all … BE STRONG! He is reminding us that there IS a way to live a strong life and to put on the strength of His might! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio! I am Carol McLeod, your host and I love digging into the mystery of the book of Ephesians with you!
On this side of heaven, one of the greatest challenges we face daily is in our relationships with our family. The apostle Paul wrote about family relationships in Ephesians 5 and in Chapter 6. Friends, the Bible is practical for your life today! We need wisdom and advice on how to deal with our family relationships. We can live fruitful lives in the kingdom of God and where we live today when we apply these principles first hand. Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. This is Carol McLeod and I want to remind you that YOUR family matters!
There is no doubt about it! God has a plan and purpose for your life! When we yield our lives to His plans and His ways, we cannot go wrong. We make choices to yield to the ways of the Lord so we can honor Him with our whole being. When we slow down, use wisdom and listen for His voice we avoid collision with the plans of God for our lives. This is your host, Carol McLeod. Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio, I am so glad you have joined me today.
Wake up my friends! God wants to bring you into a life of abundance and freedom. To do that we must let the Lord expose any dark places in our hearts or lives. Nothing EVER grows in the darkness. We must walk in the light and allow the Lord to light the path of our lives. Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio! This is your host, Carol McLeod. Will you allow the Holy Spirit to shine His light in and through you?
Paul is really challenging believers in Ephesians 5 to come to a much higher level than they have ever been. We are called higher so we can honor and become more like our heavenly Father. You, as a child of God, are called to imitate the very heart of God. This is Carol McLeod and I want to welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. I challenge you to lean in today and be open to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
It isn’t over yet! You are just getting started! You are CONSTANTLY in the process of becoming more like God. You were created to be a direct reflection of who He is. You should think, act, and speak differently than those around you! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. This is your host Carol McCleod.
Today in Ephesians I want to point out to you the better way according to scripture. You, my friend, were created for goodness, strength, kindness, peace, and joy! You are also called to lay aside bitterness, slander, and anger! You cannot let the enemy have an opportunity to gain a foothold in your life. Instead, walk in the freedom that your new life in Christ offers! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. This is your host, Carol McLeod.

Radio.
Not only has God given each of us a gift so we become more like Him but He has also given us a responsibility to the body of Christ! No one is left out here friends! God is calling us to a responsibility to the body of Christ. We should willingly spend our lives giving our lives so we can grow and mature in our faith. Your primary goals should bring unity and peace to the body of Christ! Are you ready to keep moving forward? Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. This is Carol McLeod and I love bringing the Word of truth to you every day.
Are you becoming more like Jesus Christ every day of your life? Paul gives us a wonderful picture of the great gift giver that God is!

There is one simple fact that I know …. People NEED Jesus! There are people in your everyday lives that are dying without knowing your Savior! You might be agreeing but what are YOU doing about it? If you have received God’s grace and power … YOU are called to be a minister of the Gospel. Your life was meant to be a shining example of what God can do in a human life! Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. This is your host, Carol McLeod. Let’s spruce up your job description today for the kingdom of God.
Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio! In the process of becoming more like Jesus you have to remember where you belong. You are a citizen of the Kingdom of God.

These marks make you look and sound different! This is Carol McLeod and I am so glad that you are part of the family!
