Ephesians 4:23-29 Putting on the New Man CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO 

Yesterday we talked about putting off the old man and today about putting on the new man.  This is something you do continually. There is competition between the “old” and “new” all the time. There is a constant battle.

  1. Versus. 23, be renewed in the Spirit of your mind
  2. Col 3:9-10, put off the old at salvation and put on the new
  3. II Cor 5:17, new creature
  4. II Cor 4:16, continual renewing
  5. Rom 7:22-23, battle
  6. Rom 8:13
  7. Phil 3:21, finally when you die, the battle is over

The new man delights in two things:

  1. Righteousness
    1. Matt 6:33, it comes by seeking it
    2. Rom 10:9-10, it comes by faith
    3. II Cor 5:21, it comes by Christ
    4. Phil 3:9, it comes by being conformable to his death
  2. Holiness
    1. I Jn 3:1-3
    2. I Pet 1:15-16
    3. Not enough holiness today
    4. Christians see how much they can get away with

If you put on the new man you will:

  1. Tell the truth (v. 25)
    1. Put away lying
    2. Christians lie a lot to FAKE spirituality, II Tim 3:5
    3. Modern Bibles, Rom 1:25
    4. Sensual wisdom – Jas 3:14-15, Lie against the truth
    5. We’re in the Same body – don’t lie
  2. Control your anger (v. 26)
    1. Prov 19:11
    2. Christ got mad, and we can too.  Just don’t sin
    3. Otherwise, you give place to the devil
  3. Quit stealing (v. 27)
    1. Ex 20:15, 8th commandment
  4. Do an honest day’s work (v. 28)
    1. I Thes 4:11-12
    2. Feed yourself and give to others, II Cor 9
  5. Clean up your mouth
    1. Col 4:6
    2. I Ki 22:8
    3. I Pet 4:11
    4. Eph 5:3-4

These are real, practical things!
