Chapter Four, Lesson Four
WALKING IN LIGHT Page
** Next week we will see how our "learning" about Christ causes
us to desire "Walking in Truth", but for now - As you personally
apply the statement here in verse 20 to your own life today, for what
do you find yourself to be most thankful?
Our salvation! It is because of our exposure to Jesus Christ, the drawing
of the Father and the conviction of the Holy Spirit, that we have come
to know Him. By God's grace we are no longer in the dark world of sin,
but have been transformed into His kingdom of light!
All - cf. Colossians 1:13-14
** Back in our passage for today, is it possible to find ourselves acting
like our former way of life?
Absolutely! That is why Paul, at the beginning of our text for this
today was agreeing or affirming with the Lord that we should "walk
no longer just as the Gentiles also walk". (V.17)
** Has our passage today helped you to see the plight of unregenerate
Yes - theirs is a dark and desparate condition needing the grace of
God to the same degree as did our own lives.
** If we are truly "Walking in Light", how will we be different
from the negative example we have seen today?
We will avoid any fleshly manifestation the ungodly character traits
which belong to the unsaved.
** What was the four fold description of the lost, which the apostle
Paul shared with us today?
1) "being darkened in their understanding"
2) "excluded from the life of God"
3) "ingnorance that is in them"
4) "hardness of their heart"
