Paul tells the Ephesians to walk in a manner worthy of their calling. He bases this on the truths he previously told them concerning their identity in Christ. What, then, does a worthy walk look like?

Image as Declaration Casting a Vision to the World

“Image is everything.” We have often heard this, and for the sake of a photograph, it is true. But when it comes to reality, if there is a gap between the image and what is behind the image, then that image is simply a façade.
