The do’s and don’ts of Ephesians are in this chapter.
Things to do: walk worthy….forbear one another in love, endeavor to keep the unit of the spirit, put off former conversation, be renewed in the spirit of your mind…put on the new man…grieve not the holy spirit, be kind one to another…
The dont’s: darkened understanding, blindness of heart, lasciviousness, deceitful lusts, let not the sun go down upon your wrath, steal no more, corrupt communication, bitterness, wrath anger, clamor…
Ephesians 4: 18 shows what a person is if they are not in Christ. Their understanding is darkened because of their ignorance. Their heart/mind is blinded. They have no chance of spiritual understanding without wanting Jesus as their Saviour.
...walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated front the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart. Ephesians 4:17b-18
We can be renewed in the spirit of our mind as verse 23 shows, “and put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness”… as verse 24 says. I’m glad God gives us a choice.
