Children of Light

Sunday, December 08, 2013

I am going to focus on my scripture reading for this morning. I hope you all have a blessed Lord's day. I am moving kind of slow this AM. This passage instructs us the way in which we should live as children of God, That we have been taught the gospel and we can no longer live as those untaught but live like Jesus, in true righteousness and holiness. We must think about our lives. Can we call them holy and righteous? Do we hold grudges? Do we leave anger unresolved and "let the sun go down on our anger"? My dear friends, I am doing some soul searching this morning. I pray that I can be the example spelled out in these verses and show forth the beauty of Christ in all I do and be kind always to others and be a child of light. I love you all. God bless you.

Ephesians 4:17-32
Living as Children of Light
17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. 20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. 21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. 25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you

    Eph. 4:19 Having lost all sensitivity..........

at horrible lives those who live without GOD must endure! Yet, when they have 'stuff' to idle their hours away and too much of fleshly endeavors. they are trapped and many don't know it.

How it grieves our Father after He made every provision for us necessary to please HIM and have eternal life!
