Passage: Ephesians 4:17-21
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 45 mins 23 secs
After salvation, then what? Listen to this lesson to hear a blueprint for two paths you can take. One is to continue as you did as an unbeliever, living by the dictates of the sin nature. It leads to spiritual death in this life and at the Judgment Seat of Christ you receive no rewards. The best choice is to choose to live by means of the Holy Spirit. This involves reading the Word of God, studying, internalizing, memorizing, and applying it to decisions you make. It includes confession of sin on a regular basis and results in spiritual maturity and rewards. Each day you have this decision to make so choose wisely.
