Believers had heard Paul was in prison for his gospel preaching. They were discouraged by the news. What remedy did Paul have for such discouragement? He emphasised 4 things. 1. Praise God: there are three things that are fixed and cannot be changed 2. Pray to God: there are three main things we need to understand that will remedy discouragement 3. Press on with God: Put one foot in front of the other and walk worthily of the Lord. Giving up only increases discouragement. 4. Put on the whole armour of God.

Ephesians 1:3-14 – A remedy for discouragement in the Christian life
Ephesians 1:3-14 – Every Christian has every reason to praise God
Ephesians 4 – Honour God by how you live
