Our grateful response to all that God has done for us (described in Ephesians 1-3) is to live in a manner that pleases Him (ch 4-6).
Some key expectations of the new life as a Christian are:
1. Loving my Christian brothers and sisters
Read (Ephesians 4: 1-7)
What practical steps can I take to enhance my fellowship with other Christians around me?
2. Holy living:
Read Ephesians 5: 1-13
What aspects of my life need to change as part of my commit-ment to honour God?
3. I can appropriate the power of the Holy Spirit for victorious Christian living and effective ministry.
Read Ephesians 5:17
This important subject will be discussed further in the next module.
4. Honoring God in all my relationships.
Read Ephesians 5:21, 22-25, 6:1-4, 5-9
What adjustments do I need to make to ensure my relationships are aligned to God’s standards?
5. Readiness for spiritual warfare.
When I made a new friend in Christ. I made some new enemies: Satan, my flesh and the world!
Read Ephesians 6: 10-18
What can I do to be prepared for spiritual warfare?
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
