{Ephesians 4:23-24; NLT}

Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

It is here that so much of our Church Christianity falls down. It does not change people; and therefore it is not real. The man who has known the saving power of the gospel is a changed man, in his business, in his pleasure, in his home, in his character. There should be an essential difference between the Christian and the non-Christian, because the Christian has obeyed the summons to walk the road to holiness.

William Barclay, The Daily Study Bible: the letters to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon; p. 147

Questions to consider:

  • How do we let the Spirit renew our thoughts and attitudes?
  • Why do so many church families fail in discipleship?
  • Why is it important for Christians to live differently from non-Christians?
