Sunday School lesson
The Remit: New Persona
EphetUni 4: 17-5:2
1 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 . " ( 1 Corinthians 5:17)
Today's lesson is the fourth and
last lesson in a series entitled "God
Redeems His People." In the first
lesson we asked, "Why would God
need to redeem His people unto
Himself?" and we learned the
problem was sin. Mankind had
sinned, which created a chasm
between him and God.
In the second lesson, we asked,
"Why would God want to redeem
mankind unto Himself," and saw the
motive was God's love. In the third
lesson we asked, "How would God do
it," and learned that the means was
through His Son Jesus, who paid the
sin debt by His death on the cross,
thus enabling people to be redeemed
and saved.
In today's lesson, the question is
asked, "What happens when those
who, through faith, believe that Jesus
died for the sins of man?"
The scriptures given for today's
lesson tell us that the result is that
people become "new persons."
According to the Apostle Paul they
become new creatures.
They have been born again. When
we become Christians we are new in
more ways than one. First, we are
different than the old person we used
to be. Our wishes, our motives, our
characters, our thinking, our talking,
our acting ? "all things become
new."
Second, we are new in the sense
that we are young. We are beginners
and we need to grow and mature. We
need to develop wisdom and
character and strength and goodness
? to grow in favor with God and man
and to mature in Christ.
The Apostle Paul, in writing his
letter to the church located in
Ephesus, Greece, notes that we are
called to a new life as new persons.
He points out some things that we
should not do and, also, some things
that we should do.
Read the entire chapter of
Ephesians 4 to get the full picture. I
urge to do so. First, he speaks of the
old way of life.
The Old Way
Ephesians 4:17-19
Before describing our new way,
Paul gives us a glimpse of the old
way we have left behind. It is
characterized by vanity, ignorance
and wickedness. Vanity is wor
thlessness or uselessness.
People who have turned inward
and are selfishly motivated, thinking

only of themselves, and their own
pleasures and desires. They lack the
vision of goodness and greatness in
service to God and their fellowman.
Ignorance! That is what cuts the
heathen off from the love of God.
They do not know that God gave them
life. In Ephesians 4:20-24, Paul then
speaks to the transformation which
takes place when one has been
converted ? he is to be transformed
from the old ways to the ways of God.
The New Way
Ephesians 4: 25 & 5:2
It is God who made us and it is He
who makes us over. We cannot
transform ourselves from sinners to
saints. Paul outlines things that we
are to do if God is to take us as new
creatures and shape us into His
image.
He gives a whole list of things that
we are not to do. These belong to the
old person. The neww way is a way of
truth, self-control and helpfulness,
things that have lasting qualities.
Paul then sums it all up in verse
two of chapter five; "And walk, in
love, as Christ hath also loved us. and
hath given Himself for us an offering
and sacrifice to God for a sweet
smelling savor."

= For Your Information
Dear friends,
What to tell the
children when a death
occurs in the family?
The answer ? tell
them "the truth". A
simple explanation of
the fact that death
occurs eventually to
all living things is
the most wholesome
for the child. It is far
better than pretending
that grandma has
merely "gone away for
awhile".
