The believers at Ephesus were surrounded by a culture unraveling due to idolatry and immorality, and the Apostle Paul gave them very specific directives about how to live in holiness and purity. Alistair Begg walks carefully through what it means for every believer, transformed by the Gospel, to walk according to God’s love and high standards. Through the working of the Holy Spirit, our hearts are transformed to respond with thankfulness for God’s gift of salvation, and our new identity motivates us to please Him.
3But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving.
