Valley News & Views iiTiiiiii!ii!i~iiii .... Page 7 November 17th, 2011 Paul tells (Ephesians 4:17- 19) us that people without Christ "walk, in the vanity (emptiness) of their mind". Their understanding, he says, is darkened, and they are "alienated from the life of God" (they are spiritually dead). He continues by saying they are "past feeling", which means they have experienced the loss of moral consciousness and the shame and inner pain that goes with doing wrong. People without Christ are also given to lasciviousness, or sensuality that is never satisfied, and they "greedily practice any form of vice that lust can crave" (Biblical Library). Something happens when a person turns his life over to Christ. A supernatural work occurs in that person's spirit. Verse 22 refers to a person putting off "the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts". The "Biblical Library" commentary makes this point: "The Bible clearly expresses the fact that God does not remove the sinful nature at salvation, but its power is broken so a Christian need no longer be governed by it, though he still must grapple with it... God places a new nature withiri the person, the indwelling Holy Spirit". Verse 24 says that corresponding to the removing of the old man is the putting on of "the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Patti explains it this way in II Corinthians 5:17 -- "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new." No longer "alienated from the life of God", that Life (Jesus) begins to transform a person into His own Image... God to remove all bitterness, wrath, anger and ill feelings (v.31). The result is a new man who is "kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another" (v:32). by pastor leroy aufenkamp Revel Sapa from Options will be at the senior center on Wednesday, November 16th, to assist people with Medicare Part D enrollment.
