This week I have been spending time with seven verses – it was one of those “stop you in your tracks” moments as I was reading Ephesians. The seven verses are Ephesians 4:17-24. I would like to start out looking at verse 17 and part of 18 with a question at the end for the reader to consider. After considering this question I will pick-up again at verse 18b.
Although the headings in various Bible versions are not Holy Spirit inspired, they do offer a short summary of what a given section of Scripture is about. Here are some headings given for this section of Scripture:
ESV: The New Life
NKJ: The New Man
NIV: Living as Children of Light
NASB: The Christian Walk
If we summarized these headings it may read:
“Living the Christian life, as children of Light, a new life, as a new man”
