Ephesians 5:6-14 Live in the Light _______________________
Let nobody deceive you with empty words, for because of the things God's wrath comes on the sons of disobedience.
5:7 therefore do not be partners with them.
5:8 For you were once darkness, but now you are the light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
5:9 for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth.
5:10 find out what pleases the Lord.
5:11 have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
5:12 For the things they do in secret are shameful to even mention.
5:13 but everything exposed by the light becomes invisible.
5:14 For it is light that makes everything visible. This is the way it is said:
"Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Lord, You rescued us from darkness, and You shine Your light in and through us.
May I be fruitfully alert to avoid drifting back into darkness and to make myself available to be Your light in this dark and dying world.
Pretty clear what God demands of us.
Stop fighting it and surrender to Him!!
