Ephesians 5:1-9

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

3 Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. 4 Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. 5 You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

6 Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. 7 Don’t participate in the things these people do. 8 For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! 9 For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: Verse 8 says that you were once full of darkness. What are you filled with now? What does that produce in your life?

Q: How can you fight the temptation to participate in “things these people do”? Are some things easier to avoid than other?

Q: Are the ways you live, a light to the people around you? Do people look to you because you do not act the same way others do?
