Know Who You Should Be In Christ Pt 7

 

Christians Should Be Living Examples of Christ on Earth
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.   Eph 5:1-2

 

Christians Should Maintain Purity in Their Personal Lives
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.  Eph 5:3

 

Christians Should Govern their Speech
Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.   Eph 5:4

 

Christians Should Demonstrate Godly Characteristics
For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person–such a man is an idolater–has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.   Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.  Therefore do not be partners with them.  Eph 5:5-7

 

Christians Should Shine Light Upon The Darkness of this World
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)  and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”   Eph 5:8-14

 

Christians Should Be Spiritually Fit
Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.   Eph 5:15

 

Christians Should Allow The Spirit to Control Their Lives
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.   Eph 5:17-18

 

Christians Should Be People of Priase
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.   Eph 5:19-21
