For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person 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. 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)
Ephesians 5:5-9 NIV
Before the boys head out for school, we have a devotional with them. This was the passage for this morning, and it was a great one to send them into the "world" - where they could be tempted and persuaded. It's a good reminder for all of us to LIVE AS THE LIGHT!
If we are Christians, we are His children. He wants us to live as His children, and sometimes it's hard for us to do that. But He is there to help us. He will be right there with us! His Spirit lives within us, teaching us to say no to things we need to, and helping us to say YES to what is best.
What a wonderful thought! Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
