Be Like God: Ephesians 4:32-5:2

January 5, 2020 Preacher: Bob DeWaay Series: Ephesians

Scripture: Ephesians 4:32–5:2

This sermon explains how Paul’s teaching reveals communicable attributes of God. He uses Greek imperatives to tell us how we need to be like God in kindness, graciousness, and compassion. How we treat one another as the “one new man” (Ephesians 2:15) is thematic in Ephesians. Rather than the bitterness and wrath which the previous verses in Ephesians told us to “sweep away,” we are to become imitators of God. This means that we change and grow in God’s grace. This must encompass the lives of all Christians whatever their background.

We also expound the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ who offered Himself to God to pay the penalty for our sins. Christ’s shed blood was an offering that was done “once for all.” We cover some important passages in Hebrews 10 that are commentary and application of Psalm 110:1. All who trust Christ alone are being perfected into perpetuity.
