Acting Like the Lost

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ… (Ephesians 4:17-20)

What a thought! Christians might “walk as other Gentiles” — behave like those who are lost. Paul warns us not to do this, for “ye have not so learned Christ.”

The only preventative is to constantly put off the old man, renew one’s mind in God’s Word, and put on of the new man.

Replace frustration and anger with kindness and forgiveness. This is spiritual warfare.

(See Ephesians 4:17-32)
