The Plan All Along – The Several Habits Of Highly Corrected People (Ephesians 4:25-32)

Ephesians 4:25-32 - The Several Habits Of Highly Corrected People


After revealing many wonderful mysteries about salvation, Paul starts to give us practical ways to experience God’s power in our everyday lives.


Ephesians 4:25-32     Isaiah 28:21     Matthew 10:41-42     Matthew 25:31-46     Luke 19:31


“These verses are often yanked out of the passage and, generally, the idea is “Anger is not a good thing, but we all get angry, so if you get angry don’t sin and make sure you deal with it by bedtime.”
But, does that make sense in the context? If I took out anger and put in a different sin, would we feel comfortable with that interpretation? In the context of the passage, what do we see? Paul – multiple times – presents a do/don’t formula: Don’t lie, speak the truth. Don’t steal, work honestly. Don’t rage, be compassionate. But here, “Well, you’re gonna be angry…I guess just don’t do it too
much.” It doesn’t fit with how Paul has been talking. Strip off lying. Put away the old man. No longer walk as the Gentiles do. “Eh…you’re gonna be mad sometimes…just keep it to a dull roar.””
