Putting on the New Self

Ephesians 4:17-24 | Sermon Resources | 5 June 2022


In the sermon this week Pastor Billy explores Paul’s repeated plea for the Ephesians to honor Christ with how they live their life.  We will pay particular attention to the reason Paul gives for doing so and the power we have available to us.
