Do Not Give the Devil a Foothold

From Series: Grace and Peace, Volume 5

Ephesians 4:25-28  (ID: 3237)

Christians have a new identity in Christ that should be reflected in our lifestyle. Alistair Begg reminds us that walking in a manner worthy of the calling we have received involves speaking truthfully, distinguishing righteous from unrighteous anger, and working diligently in order to give generously. When the Church cultivates this kind of lifestyle, it denies the devil a foothold in our lives and testifies to the power of the Gospel.


25Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. 26Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27and give no opportunity to the devil. 28Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
