Imitating God and be Sanctified
We had a sermon today, one that is seldom preached in churches on Christian Living and on sins that we are to avoid.
Here in Ephesians 5:1-7, Paul lists six: (1) sexual immorality, (2) greediness and covetousness, (3) uncleanliness of our hearts, (4) filthiness in improper thought, word and deed, (5) foolish talk and (6) crude jesting.
As it would have been in the first century communities where Paul was, so it is with us now that these acts may sound normal and so what's the big deal. And worse for us, we get sucked into it with the plethora of the media access we have and our ability to get access to almost anything we want.
But in the end, these are the very things we need to avoid. And our lives will be much more at peace and in harmony with others.
