Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learn from Ephesians

(Application Part – 4:17 – 6:24)

Compiled by Jamsco

You must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds ··· Put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires.  ··· Be renewed in the spirit of your minds ··· Put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. ··· Let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor ··· Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger ··· Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands ··· Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up ··· Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. ··· Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you ··· Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children ··· Walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God ··· Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving ··· Let no one deceive you with empty words··· One time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord  ··· Walk as children of light ··· Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them ··· Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. ···Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery ··· Be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. ··· Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. ···  Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her ··· Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh ··· Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right ···  Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord ··· Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ ··· Masters, do the same to them, and stop your threatening, knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with him ··· Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication ··· Peace be to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible.
