Living In The Light

Ephesians 5:1-7 New Living Translation (NLT)

Living in the Light

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.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.

Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. 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.

Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. Don’t participate in the things these people do.

Dear Father, I will work to imitate you. I am your dear child. May I live a life filled with love. May I follow the example of Christ. Jesus loved us so much that he offered himself as a sacrifice. He is a pleasing aroma to God. May I work to keep to purity. May I stay clear of immorality and greed. Sin has no place in my life. Obscenity, foolish talk, and course language is not for me. I am thankful to God. To inherit the Kingdom of Christ, I must be moral, pure, and generous. I will ask for forgiveness when I sin, and I will repent and change my behavior. You forgive my sin as far as the east is from the west, and I am thankful for that. Thank you for your provision, protection, and presence in my life. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
