Ephesians 4:19

and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness

 

LESSON

 

We have had too much on the power of positive thinking today. We need a little of the power of negative thinking. Have you ever thought that in the Garden of Eden the primary command was a negative command? ‘But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die’. Then you come to the Ten Commandments. They are very negative but also very good. Now here in Ephesians we see some negative thinking, some prohibitions for the child of God. We are not to walk ‘as other Gentiles

walk.’ This is the negative side.

As a result of this condition, unsaved Gentiles typically “have given themselves over to sensuality,” to live lives of sensual self-indulgence. Self-abandonment to deeper sin is the Divine judicial penalty of sin.

Memory Verse: Ephesians 4:18
