Passage: Ephesians 5:5       Series Ephesians
  Description: “Who Are You Imitating?” Eph. 5:1-5 Purpose: Imitate God, not the world! 1. What Imitating God Looks Like Ephesians 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. What’s the “therefore” there for? Command: Be imitators of God! As beloved children Walk how? in love Who is our example? Christ Who loved you and 2) gave Himself up Offering & sacrifice & fragrant aroma are all descriptions of worship 2. What Imitating God is NOT Like Ephesians 5:3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting What must not be even named among us? 1) immorality 2) any impurity 3) greed as is proper among who? saints = believers And there must be no 4) filthiness 5) silly talk 6) coarse jesting Which are not fitting See Matthew 12:36, 15:1-20! 3. Why? Your Inheritance is at Stake Ephesians 5:4b but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Immoral, impure, and covetous people will not inherit the Kingdom Notice the relation between “children” in v. 1 and “inheritance” here Connecting all of this with Palm Sunday: Behold your King, do you believe?

Passage: Ephesians 4:25-32       Series Ephesians
  Description: Look in the Mirror, What Do You See? Eph. 4:25-32 Purpose: to call us to live out the “New Self in Christ” Ephesians 4:25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE of you WITH HIS NEIGHBOR, for we are members of one another. 26 BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and do not give the devil an opportunity. 28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need. 29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. 30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. How should we forgive? As God in Christ forgave you

  Description: Jesus, the Anchor of All Ephesians 4:20-21 Purpose: drawing near to Jesus, The Anchor of our new life 1. Learning Christ Correctly Ephesians 4:20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, You did not learn Christ how? in this way see context of verses 17-19 Meaning what? walking in darkness Darkness v.

Hearing Christ Correctly Ephesians 4:20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, Notice the “condition” statement, why is the “if” there? maybe some have not Christ Think of Jesus’ parable of the Tares and the Wheat (Matthew 13:24-30; 36-43) Have you heard Christ? Hearing Christ Correctly means we have met Him 3. Living in Christ Correctly Ephesians 4:20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus Where is truth found? in Jesus (see John 14:6-7) If you have heard Him and have been taught IN HIM (see Rom. 10:9-17) Then you should be NOT like the rest of the world!! Get it? Living in Christ Correctly means we follow His teachings

  Description: You’re Not Who You Think You Are Ephesians 4:17-19 Purpose: people who have met Christ are changed forever 1. No Longer Futile Ephesians 4:17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, We are to walk not like who? the Gentiles (but that was us?!) Remember Ephesians 2 Who WERE you? You are not that way anymore! Who ARE you now? 2. Called Out of the Darkness Ephesians 4:18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. How is that kind of living described that Christians are NOT to live like anymore? darkened in their understanding excluded from the life of God because of ignorance and hardness of heart callous given themselves over to sensuality, impurity, greed
