Signs of Life (Part 1) | Ephesians 4:25-27
Christians are different to the world and are therefore called to live differently. To do this Paul tells us that we are to put off our pre-Christian way of living and put on our new self, created after the likeness of God (vv. 17-24). And now Paul takes doctrinal truth and practically applies it to everyday life in a series of six sign of new life that should be present in the believer. Each positive sign is matched with a negative prohibition and relates to how we live in the Holy community of Christ.
Sign 1: Exchange lying for truth telling (v. 25)
Sign 2: Exchange sinful anger for righteous anger (vv. 26-27)
