WALKING IN KINDNESS Page 2
Walking in Kindness
V.25 ** Paul opened this chapter in verse one with a call to walk worthy. He then painted a beautiful picture of the unity of the Body and the uniqueness of each Believer. We have seen that Christ has given each one of us a spiritual gift to be used for His glory and that as we use our gift the Body is built up, strengthened against Satan's schemes and is caused to grow by God Himself. Paul also reminded us of the vast difference between the child of God and the child of Satan as he encouraged us with the reality that we have laid aside the old man and put on the new.
With all of that as background, Paul now gives us five ways to exhibit our Christian life. If we are "Walking in Kindness" what is the first way we will display the genuineness of our Christianity?
1. By speaking the truth with one another!
** How does the world view lying?
** According to this verse, what is the motive for us to be speaking truthfully with one another?
