How to live as a Christian

Eph. 4:1-6 is on how to live as a Christian!


  1. Walk in a manner worthy of our calling (Eph. 4:1)
    Col. 1:10 so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
  2. Have all humility, gentleness, patience, and tolerance in love (Eph. 4:2)
    Matt. 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
  3. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit in peace (Eph. 4:3-6)
    1Cor. 1:10 Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Situation Ethics? (Matt. 12:1-8)

An exposition of Matthew 12:1-8
  • Situational ethics is individualistic and therefore may give people an excuse for not obeying Jesus’ commands through His apostles when it suits them.
  • Does Matt. 12:1-8 teach “situation ethics”, as some claim? No!
  • Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (Jn.14:15). That is the end of the matter.
