On episode 61 of the Adorned Podcast we dive into chapter 4 of Ephesians. This is where we see the shift from Paul describing what the gospel is to how we are to live in light of it’s truth. He gives us some great practical advice for how to do this. The theme of unity continues throughout this chapter and we are also reminded of the importance of sound doctrine. Join us as we continue to walk through Ephesians together!

Quotes:

“The Gospel doesn’t just change our beliefs, but it changes our behavior.”

“The Gospel is not just historical facts, but it’s transformative truth.”

“Meekness is The gentleness of the strong, whose strength is under control.”

“Patience is long suffering towards aggravating people, such as God, in Christ has shown towards us.” -John Stott

“Without grounding in solid doctrine concerning who Jesus is, we will get tossed around according to whatever spiritual fad is trending.” -Gloria Furman

“Blind is exactly where Satan wants us to stay. He works to blind our minds to keep us from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.” -Gloria Furman

“The heart cannot love what the mind does not know.” -Jen Wilkin

“Let no one say that doctrine does not matter! Good conduct arises out of good doctrine. It is only when we have grasped clearly who we are in Christ, that the desire will grow within us to live a life that is worthy of our calling and fitting to our character as God’s new society.” -John Stott
