B. The Living Needed in the Daily Walk
  1. 5:21
1. Basic Principles
  1. This therefore I say and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk in the vanity of their mind,
  2. Being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance which is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;
  3. Who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lasciviousness to work all uncleanness in greediness.
  4. But you did not so learn Christ,
  5. If indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him as the reality is in Jesus,
  6. That you put off, as regards your former manner of life, the old man, which is being corrupted according to the lusts of the deceit,
  7. And that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind
  8. And put on the new man, which was created according to God in righteousness and holiness of the reality.
2. The Details of This Living
  1. Therefore having put off the lie, speak truth each one with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
  2. Be angry, yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your indignation,
  3. Neither give place to the devil.
  4. He who steals should steal no more, but rather should labor, working with his own hands in that which is respectable, that he may have something to share with him who has need.
  5. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but only that which is good for building up, according to the need, that it may give grace to those who hear.
  6. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed unto the day of redemption.
  7. Let all bitterness and anger and wrath and clamor and evil speaking be removed from you, with all malice.
