Today's Good News


10/16          Ephesians 5:10-14 

Carefully determine what pleases the Lord.  11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. 12 It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret.  13 But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, 14 for the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”


The Christ life is simple.  Obey the Lord.  Walk away from the “I Know What” crowd that assumes every thought they have is a “good” thought.  Let the Holy Spirit and the Word of God guide you and do not fall prey to the “if it’s done in love it must be right.”  You and I are charged with walking away.  The Lord will give us the wisdom to know what to walk away from.
