A Crash Course in Christlike Living

A Crash Course in Christlike Living

July 20/21, 2019

In this longest section of the series, Paul walks through a depiction of Christlike living – “a life worthy of the calling you have received” (4:1) – framed as putting off the old self and putting on the new self (4:20-24). The old self was marked by darkened understanding and impure living. The new self is marked by renewal of the mind and holiness. Paul applies this to our internal desires, the words we speak toward others, our sexuality, and many other specific activities. The endpoint of it all is being filled with the spirit, so that our lives become praiseworthy to the Lord (5:18-20).

Key Passage: Ephesians 4:17-5:20
