Ephesians 5:10-20

10 Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. 11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. 12 It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. 13 But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, 14 for the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said,
“Awake, O sleeper,
rise up from the dead,
and Christ will give you light.”
15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. 17 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. 18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, 19 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. 20 And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Q: Verses 10, 15, and 17 all have a resounding theme, be intentional; live on purpose. Do you live accidentally, or do you choose to live wisely?

Q: Is your goal to just get into heaven, or is to learn about Jesus, obey Him, and then teach others to do the same?

Q: If your goal is to live in such a way that you bring glory and honor to God, will the people around you see something different in you than what is in the world around them?
