Spiritual Walk

 

Many times in life we so wish for a do/don’t list. So many times we come across situations where things are grey. We wish and pray that God would clear things up to be more black and white and often times He does!! Praise the Lord. I have been reading and Eph and God gives us a clear DO/DON’T list on how to walk. Things that will help us edify each other.  Conversations that are pleasing to him. A certain mind set that we are to have. Here are some gems I have gleamed from this list. 🙂

 

Ephesians 4:11-16 (paraphrased and simplified)

he gave some : apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors, and teachers.

why? perfecting of the saints, work of the ministry, edifying of the body of Christ

when? come in the unity of the faith, of the knowledge of the Son of God

that we be no more children,  that we may grow up into him in all things, that we may increase the body unto edifying

 

Eph. 4:17-32

DO

  • Be renewed in the spirit of your mind
  • Put on the new man ,which God created in righteous and true holiness
  • Speak everyman truth with his neighbor
  • Let him labour, working with his hands that which is good
  • Be ye kind one to another
  • Forgive one another, even as God has forgiven you for Christ’s sake

DON’T

  • Walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind
  • Put off the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts
  • Put away lying
  • Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth
  • Grieve not the holy Spirit
  • Put away all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamour (excess noise), evil speaking, and malice (desire to inflict injury, harm, or suffering on another)
