In our last episode in this podcast series on the book of Ephesians, we looked at the alternative lifestyles and realities born from the dust or from the breath of God. We continue along that theme in today’s episode as we look at a new kind of human God intended us to be and the new life He wants us to live in Christ. This is the pathway to sight, life, and transformation!
17-19 This is my instruction, then, which I give you from God. Do not live any longer as the Gentiles live. For they live blindfold in a world of illusion, and cut off from the life of God through ignorance and insensitiveness. They have stifled their consciences and then surrendered themselves to sensuality, practising any form of impurity which lust can suggest.
20-24 But you have learned nothing like that from Christ, if you have really heard his voice and understood the truth that he has taught you. No, what you learned was to fling off the dirty clothes of the old way of living, which were rotted through and through with lust’s illusions, and, with yourselves mentally and spiritually re-made, to put on the clean fresh clothes of the new life which was made by God’s design for righteousness and the holiness which is no illusion.
