  1. Read Ephesians 4:17-27 for context, and to remind yourselves of what the passage was. 
  2. What are three things that stood out to you from today's passage? From today's preaching and teaching?
  3. What is the meaning of orthodox? What is the meaning of orthopraxy? How are they tied to Scripture and our daily lives?
  4. Why is it important for our doctrine to inform our actions? How important is it then for us to have correct doctrine? And why? 
  5. Can you give examples of how Christians live differently for different reasons compared to the world and unbelievers? Why is that important?
  6. What does verse 25 of Ephesians 4 mean? Who is the Apostle Paul quoting and what is the context of that passage that it fits so well with what Paul was writing? Why is it important for the members of the body of Christ to speak truth to one another? What does it mean to "tell the truth" versus "speaking falsehood" daily in our lives and with the body of Christ? What does "speaking the truth" promote within the body of Christ? How can you speak the truth in love?
  7. What do verses 26-27 of Ephesians 4 mean? Do these verses mean you are allowed to be angry? Is there any reason why the Apostle Paul wrote about anger after writing about speaking the truth? What "kind" of anger are we to practice as Christians? Can you provide examples from Scripture of righteous anger versus sinful anger? What is the difference? How can we ensure that we are practicing the right kind of anger?
  8. What happens if we fail to speak the truth in love to our brothers and sisters in Christ? What do we do when we give in to sinful anger? How can the Gospel be seen through all of this?
