Becoming Like Christ

Ephesians 4:1-6        Sermon Resources    |    8 May 2022


Pastor Billy begins a new section in Ephesians this week, coming to Paul’s plea to walk in a manner worthy of the calling we have received. We turn from the gospel promises in the first half of the letter to the rich gospel commands found in the last half of the letter. Paul shows that he is concerned not only with our believing in Christ but with becoming like Christ.
