Eph.5:10: "Learn as you go what pleases the Lord." Paul's writings are full of positive admonitions for his readers to heed. His primary desire is that we be 'found faithful serving and living for God!" Think on these directives and I believe you will agree that "living the Christian life is the most exciting goal we can have." V 1-- Follow God's example in everything; V 2-- Be full of love for others; V 3-- Let there be no impure or greedy thoughts or actions; V 4-8-- remind each other of God's goodness & be thankful; V9--Do only what is good and right and true.
Now Paul knew the Ephesian believers could not just wake up one morning and instantly see all of these as realities. But he was encouraging his friends to incorporate these teachings in every way, every day, so that their journey "now" begins to lead them toward that state of purity, holiness, and completeness of which Jesus taught.Subscribe to Read!
