Ephesians 4:32–5:8Brothers and sisters:Be kind to one another, compassionate,forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.Be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love,as Christ loved us and handed himself over for usas a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.Immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be mentioned among you,as is fitting among holy ones,no obscenity or silly or suggestive talk, which is out of place,but instead, thanksgiving.Be sure of this, that no immoral or impure or greedy person,that is, an idolater,has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.Let no one deceive you with empty arguments,for because of these thingsthe wrath of God is coming upon the disobedient.So do not be associated with them.For you were once darkness,but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
Peace Be With You!
The older the world becomes, the more we lose sight of what is true and pure and perfect. Even as Christians, we "slip" at some point every day of our lives. But, even though we ask and receive forgiveness, we must continue on our life journey with a mind toward not repeating sins and living for Christ. Many are angry, many have lost all hope, man live without love in their hearts, many judge others as if they have that right, many are lonely, and many do not know Jesus as our Savior and giver of our Salvation, and God as the Father of all in heaven.
Allow no one to draw you into salacious and vicious conversation or actions. If someone begins to gossip or speak in filthy terms, which you as a Christian should recognize, you must walk away. Either that or turn the conversation to Jesus and our Salvation, and help lead them away from the evildoer. If you are unable to save them from themselves, then you must leave them.
Since you are a child of God, you have accepted Jesus as your Savior forever. Never cease to pray for good things, harden not your hearts in times of trouble, but look to Jesus for your Salvation and He will take these things away from you.
God of all is seeing this world for what it has become and where it is leading. Be certain that nothing gets in your way on your journey to heaven!
If you are an imitator of Christ, then you are a CHILD OF THE LIGHT. You now live, walk and love IN THE LIGHT! Have Hope that people see Christ in you and that they turn their hearts to Him forever. Because you may have once been in darkness, and now you see, live and love IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.
Lovingly in Jesus Christ,
