This passage of Scripture is SO sobering and SO convicting. Every time I get to Ephesians 5 in my quiet time, I KNOW this is coming; and every time I read it I’m challenged, convicted and confessing some things. I’m just gonna let the Scripture speak for itself and I’m gonna ask you to hold your life up against this Scripture. WOW! You can’t argue with this. (I’ve added the emphasis)
Ephesians 5:1-5 Imitate God, therefore, in EVERYTHING you do, BECAUSE you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved usand offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. 3 Let there be NO sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. 4 Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are NOT for you. INSTEAD, let there be thankfulness to God. 5 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.
