Eph 4:25–5:5

4:25–5:5 Paul outlines six concrete ways that Christians “put off” their old lives and “put on” life in Christ: they must turn from lying to telling the truth (4:25, 26); from uncontrolled anger to self-control (4:26, 27); from stealing to useful labor (4:28); from harmful to helpful speech (4:29, 30); from bitterness to love (4:31–5:2); and from unrestrained sexual desires to a thankful acknowledgement of God’s good gifts (5:3–5). In each case, Paul offers a reason for the change from old to new.
