Conduct *Eph. 4:11-32

How are we supposed to live? How are we to conduct ourselves according to God’s Holy Word? Verse by verse we will look at what the Lord says in the Bible.
vs. 12 – works of service for God
vs. 13-14 – grow up & become mature
vs. 15 – speak in love, grow up in Christ
vs. 16 – build each other up; love and support. Working for the good of the body of Christ
vs. 17 – guard your thinking; trust God completely. Take every thought captive.
2 Cor. 10:5  We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
