Scripture text: Ephesians 4:17-32              Preacher: Rev David Sutherland             Date: 15 February 2015

We continue our study of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. In the earlier part of Chapter 4 Paul writes of the unity of the Spirit, of the spiritual gifts Christ gives to his church, and of the consequent process of the Christian body maturing and growing into Christ. Verse 17 introduces the topic of how Christians in their new identity are to live. Focusing on verse 20, and in particular on the words “learned Christ”, the sermon reflects on the new person the Christian becomes, created after the likeness of God, and having a renewed spirit of mind.
