“The Renewed Walk” (Eph. 4:17-24)
1. The futile walk
2. To know Christ
3. Putting on Christ
When we desire to take off our old self, God will take it away. Not only that, but He will give us his new garment. He wants us to clothe in Christ (Gal. 3:27). Instead of mourning, He will give us gladness and honor. Instead of a spirit of despair, he will clothe us with a garment of praise (Is. 61:3).
Every morning is the new opportunity to put on new clothe of Christ. We can choose to wear a brand-new clothe of Christ moment by moment. That’s our renewed walk.
For LifeNet groups and personal reflection:
1) What kind of images do you have about God? List them up, and think how those images were made, what influenced you to have those images. And, how does those images of God affect your current relationship with God?
2) Look back last one week, was there any moment you were in the old clothe? Can you remember your feelings and thoughts at that time?
3) Think about something that reminds you to wear the new clothe. (For example, to put a picture card on the desk, to set alarm three times in your working hour to pause what you’re doing and to read one verse of Psalm, etc.) And share your plan with someone and ask the person to pray for you. See how it helps you this week.
