INTRODUCTION.

This four-part series focuses on new life in Christ. How does faith in Jesus change us? How should our attitudes, emotions, and actions be different from anyone else?  

DISCUSSION.

How would you compare moral standards today with standards in 1917?

EXAMINATION.

What does the putting off of the old self (v.22) and the putting on of the new self (v.24), have to do with how you become a Christian?

v.25 What does it mean to speak truthfully to your neighbor?

v.26 Whether anger is unrighteous or not, what must Christians not do with anger according to this verse?

v.27 How does unresolved anger give the devil a foothold?

v.28 Why should Christians have an extra motivation to work?

Vv.29-30 How can we judge which words are useful and which aren’t?

What does it mean to grieve the Spirit?

Vv.31-32 How do we “get rid of” such things? Is this about being self-disciplined? Why or why not?

APPLICATION.  

  • How have your attitudes, actions, and thoughts changed since giving your life to Christ?
  • When it comes to our communication with others, we have three options: we can pour lies, anger, and negativity; we can pour nothing; or we can pour truth, generosity, and compassion. Which of those is your tendency and why?
  • Fact: What is a key truth that you understood from this passage?
  • React: What did you feel?
  • Act: What are you going to do?
