On Sunday, October 2, Jay will preach "A New Humanity" from Ephesians 4:17-24.
Call to Worship: Galatians 3:25-28
Old Testament Reading: Leviticus 20:26
New Testament Reading: Colossians 3:9-10
“A New Humanity”: Ephesians 4:17-24
I. Old Man
II. New Man
Questions for Discussion:
1. What approaches does our culture pursue in an effort to see a new humanity produced? How does a Christian worldview influence our thinking on those approaches?
2. Some have said that this passage proves that it is unthinkable for a Christian to act like an unbeliever. What truth is in that statement? How could it be nuanced?
3. In what ways does your current life now reflect your life or understanding before conversion?
4. Recount the Augustine sermon illustration. What helpful truth is there? How does it capture Paul’s argument from Ephesians 4:17-24? How does that truth practically play out in our sanctification?
