Ephesians 4:20-25 – Taking off & putting on
Key idea: If we don’t do the hard work of digging beneath the surface, the junk of our past will continue to shape us in the present.
• Take off (vs.22) –
• Corrupted by deceitful desires (vs. 22) –
*Unless we identify the lies we once lived by, chances are they are influencing us beneath the surface.
What is beneath the surface of me that I’m covering up?
We often live believing:
X-Ray questions to identify my driving desires:
• Putting on (vs. 23-24)
Taking off and putting on are a _____________________________ process
Renewing your mind:
According to God’s likeness
• Speak the truth to one another (vs. 25)
This week, find at least 10 minutes for silence and solitude to pray Psalm 139:23-24. Listen for what God reveals in your heart and mind. Use the x-ray questions and the lies we believe points to help you dig beneath the surface. Then share what God has shown you with one trusted friend or your life group leader.
