Ephesians 5

Paul challenges us to be imitators of God. We, as children of God, should not participate in a long list of numerous sins, including but not limited to obscenity, greed and sexual immorality. He calls us to live a life of holiness and not to let anyone deceive us with their words or actions. If we do not follow His command, God’s wrath will come on the disobedient.

Expose the darkness to the light for everything exposed to the light becomes visible. The fruit of the light is truth and righteousness. Be careful and live wisely. Make the most of every opportunity presented to you because the days are short and filled with evil. Be on guard against evil; it can be seen or unseen. Be filled with the Spirit, speak to others, sing songs in your heart to our Lord Jesus, constantly giving thanks for all that you have been blessed with in your life.

Wives submit to your husbands as you submit to the Lord. Husbands love your wives just as Christ loves the church. Because of that great love, Christ died for His bride, the church. Husbands love your wives as you do your own body. No man ever hated his own body. Man should leave his mother and father and cleave to his wife for as they marry they become a new family in Christ.
