STIMULATE

** In our time together last week, we rejoiced in our privilege to be "Walking in Light" as the children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. However, we also learned, in point blank fashion, about the plight of the unsaved world around us. Do you recall how Paul described them in Ephesians 4:18?

1) "being darkened in their understanding"
2) "excluded from the life of God"
3) "ignorance that is in them"
4) "hardness of their heart"

** Realizing the tremendous need of the unsaved world, what effect has that had on your daily walk?

It causes us to view our lives and especially the lives of those around us from an eternal perspective. We need to always "set [our minds] on the things above, not on the things that are on earth" (Colossians 3:2)

MOTIVATE

** As we continue in this wonderful passage today the apostle Paul shows us our greatest treasure, second only to our personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Having "come to know" Him, we have been given the blessing of "Walking in Truth" everyday. What is the impact of that marvelous reality? For the answer, let's look together to what the Lord has for us in Ephesians 4:21-24.

Read Passage (V.21-24) Beginning in verse 20 . . .

Walking in Truth

INVESTIGATE

V.21 ** What do you remember about verse 20 from last week regarding the expression "learn Christ"?

This expression was an "aorist active indicative", indicating a one-time act at the moment of our salvation. "Learning" Christ was synonymous with "coming to know" Him through the miracle of regeneration and salvation by grace. cf. 1John 2:4
