Not Stealing; but Labouring
A Sermon on Ephesians 4:28
Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. (ESV)
The manner in which the Gospel saves; the regenerate man must learn to grow and live his new life; we are not automatically delivered from all our sins and temptations; stealing in the widest sense; stealing; the misuse of an ability; the modern philosophy that despises work; fellowship based upon trust; the Biblical meaning of labour; the Christian is a custodian.
