In Ephesians 5:2, we see God’s standard for us in living His love: “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us….” We show our love for God and others by putting on the “mind of Christ” and walking out on God’s Word in our everyday living as Jesus Christ did. This issue will help us claim and manifest the love and power that are already ours through the accomplished work of Jesus Christ.

To engrave two great spiritual realities into our thinking, Sam Graham focuses on “Ephesians 3:20: The Power That Works in Us.” We learn that God can do, and we can do, and that God’s power will work dynamically in our lives as we take believing action to see it big, dare to do, and walk valiantly for Him. In “Redemption—Our Right for Right Now!” Liz Echternacht teaches about this sonship right that we have as sons and daughters of God. She also suggests practical things we can do to claim our redemption every moment of our lives.

The Children’s Activities pages offer the young and those with a youthful outlook fun ways to dig a little deeper into truths presented in this issue. What Does the Word Say? answers the question “Can we lose our salvation?” by explaining from the Scriptures how we are saved, and the difference between sonship and fellowship. In I Corinthians 13: The Love of God, we see that we’re fully equipped as sons of God to manifest God’s love by demonstrating His kindness in our words, actions, and deeds.

In the Witnesses in Our Occupations article, “Witnesses in Our Homes and Families,” Mary Kay Koetteritz shares how a woman, as the keeper of her home, can guard and bless her household spiritually and physically while fostering an environment where love can flourish. Lori Bolchalk, in Titles of God in the Bible, focuses on another essential characteristic of our magnificent God Who is “The God of Love.” The Prevailing Word Report gives us highlights and photographs from the South Atlantic Region Meeting, held February 5–7, 2016, and from the recognition fellowships on Saturday, April 2, 2016, for the Way Disciples of Outreach Group XXII.

Find out how those in your family or household fellowship like to be loved by asking them, “How do you know when someone loves you with God’s love?” You can also think about how you would answer this question. Then explore this issue to find loving actions you can take toward each other, and enjoy sharing what you discover!
