Ephesians 5:1-33, NLT
Living in the Light
1Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.
3Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.
6Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him.
10Carefully determine what pleases the Lord.
“Awake, O sleeper,
rise up from the dead,
and Christ will give you light.”
Living by the Spirit’s Power
15So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.
