Ephesians 4:17-24 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Living the New Life

17 Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their thoughts. 18 They are darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them and because of the hardness of their hearts. 19 They became callous and gave themselves over to promiscuity for the practice of every kind of impurity with a desire for more and more.[a]

20 But that is not how you learned about the Messiah, 21 assuming you heard about Him and were taught by Him, because the truth is in Jesus. 22 You took off[b] your former way of life, the old self[c] that is corrupted by deceitful desires; 23 you are being renewed[d] in the spirit of your minds; 24 you put on[e] the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth.
