Power to Imitate God
The way you live is impacted by the way you think. The way you think is a result of who you are. This is what Paul has been explaining in this letter. Live this way, because you are a new creation. This is what God has gone to great lengths to accomplish! This is what the first 3 and a half chapters of this letter is describing. It’s moving. It’s powerful and it will change you. That’s Paul’s great point in this letter. A Christian’s life looks different. It looks different because it is different. And these last chapters explain how that difference looks in the practical, day-to-day areas of life.
