Ephesians 4:17-5:20 Discussion Promps

Newness in Christ Series
“New Standards”
 
  1. Ephesians 4 and 5 share a lot of similar language with Proverbs 2. Because what has been revealed to us in Bible has been intricately woven together by the Holy Spirit (2 Pet. 1:19-21), we can learn from studying these passages together. In light of this unity, how do the Ephesians and Proverbs shape your understanding of wisdom, walking, light, darkness, etc.?

 

  1. Each week we have thousands of opportunities for “truthing in love (Eph. 4:15).” Having been urged to walk in truth, love, and wisdom, what areas of your life does this passage challenge you to discard, change, or tighten up?

 

  1. Like the light of a city upon a hill (Matt. 5:14-16), Christians are a source of light amidst darkness. Knowing that our “light” comes from our father, God (1 John 1:5), share with the group one place or relationship where you will intentionally be light this week. Pray as a group for these specific opportunities.
