Week 4, Day 6

II. The church has seven major aspects

F. The new man—Eph. 2:15–16; Col. 3:9–11

Ephesians 2:15–16 Abolishing in His flesh the law of the commandments in ordinances, that He might create the two in Himself into one new man, so making peace, 16 And might reconcile both in one Body to God through the cross, having slain the enmity by it.

Colossians 3:9–11 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his practices 10 And have put on the new man, which is being renewed unto full knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 Where there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, but Christ is all and in all.

1. In the new man there is no place for the natural man, the old man—Col. 3:9, 11a

2. In the new man Christ is all and in all—Col. 3:11b

G. The golden lampstand—Rev. 1:20b

Revelation 1:20 The mystery of…the seven golden lampstands:…the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
