Rules for the New Life
We are part of the same body. Stop lying and start telling each other the truth.
Don't get so angry that you sin. Don't go to bed angry
and don't give the devil a chance.
28 If you are a thief, quit stealing. Be honest and work hard, so you will have something to give to people in need.
29 Stop all your dirty talk. Say the right thing at the right time and help others by what you say.
30 Don't make God's Spirit sad. The Spirit makes you sure that someday you will be free from your sins.
Stop being bitter and angry and mad at others. Don't yell at one another or curse each other or ever be rude.
Instead, be kind and merciful, and forgive others, just as God forgave you because of Christ.
Do as God does. After all, you are his dear children.
Let love be your guide. Christ loved us
j 5.2 us: Some manuscripts have “you.”
and offered his life for us as a sacrifice that pleases God.
