Jesus makes us new.

Because we are made new, we should also live new.

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.

Ephesians 5:1

As his children, we are called to imitate God.

Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

1 Corinthians 11:1

We learn the faith by watching those with faith.


And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Ephesians 5:2

3 But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4 Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. 5 For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partners with them; 8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

Ephesians 5:3-10

Real love is self-giving and self-sacrificing.
Jesus is more than our example — He’s our Savior.


Jesus makes us new

Ephesians 5:1

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children

Only real Christianity has positive negatives

Ephesians 5:3

But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you

God’s perspective of sex is “echo” but our perspective is “eco

Ephesians 5:5

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Greed is living at your means
The difference is between “first fruits” and leftovers


Joshua 7:21

“When I saw in the plunder a beautiful robe from Babylonia, two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. They are hidden in the ground inside my tent, with the silver underneath.”

Ephesians 5:4

Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving.

Walk as children



1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and
gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:1-2 (ESV)

Walk in light


4 Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let
there be thanksgiving. 5 For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or
who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6 Let no one
deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of
disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partners with them; 8 for at one time you were darkness, but
now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and
right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of
darkness, but instead expose them.
Ephesians 5:4-11 (ESV)

Walk in wisdom


15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the
time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord
is.
Ephesians 5:15-17 (ESV)
