Daily Verses : Ephesians 5 : 1-21
Key Verse : Ephesians 5 : 8 : For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
Once again, Paul reminded the church in Ephesus to no longer live in their old life that is still in darkness. He repeated again the things that had already been discussed from the previous letter in Ephesians 4. He reminded them to no longer live in greed, stay away from foolish talk, idolatry, sexual immorality and etc., and start living as children of light. In verse 7, Paul warned that children of light are not to associate with those who are still living in darkness. Be careful, because bad company corrupts good character in the Lord, 1 Corinthians 15:33. In verse 10 and 17, he reminded them that as children of light, we must always find out what pleases the Lord and understand His will. And lastly, he also reminded us to be wise, making the most of every opportunity, Ephesians 5 : 15,16.
Children of light are always wise: paying attention to who their friends are, paying good attention to time, and understanding the Lord’s will.
