Hello brothers and sisters! Today is such a good day because Christ has given it! I want to share something that can encourage us all to live as we should! The passage is found in Ephesians 5:15-21.
“15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.17 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. 18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, 19 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. 20 And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
With this passage in mind, I want us to focus on a few things:
- We need to really check ourselves and make sure we look carefully at how we walk as verse 15 tells us. We don’t know who is watching or what our actions can lead to. Therefore, let’s only do things that can encourage, benefit, and do good for Christ, anything else is worthless.
- Also we should pray for understanding of God’s will as verse 17 tells us. We should really try to be wise and understanding.
- In verse 18 and 19, we are told to not get drunk, but to be filled with the spirit and sing and praise. With these two verses in mind, let’s make sure we are always being filled with the Spirit. Let’s make sure we are always encouraging one another and singing and praising the Lord with our hearts, externally as well as internally!
- Finally, let’s always be thankful and praising to the Lord for everything. Let’s be submissive to each other and to Christ, even if we may be right, or the other person is asking too much, or whatever the case may be, let’s be submissive, because that’s what the Bible is teaching us.
I want to thank you for taking time to read this post today. May God bless you and encourage you, give you wisdom and understanding, and may your heart be open to the change He has awaiting you. God bless and thanks once again!
