Walk in Love

5 Therefore abe imitators of God as dear bchildren. And cwalk in love, das Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God efor a sweet-smelling aroma.

But fornication and all funcleanness or gcovetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; hneither filthiness, nor ifoolish talking, nor coarse jesting, jwhich are not fitting, but rather kgiving of thanks. For 1this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any linheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be mpartakers with them.

Walk in Light

For you were once darkness, but now you are nlight in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for othe fruit of the 2Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 pfinding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have qno fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather 3expose them. 12 rFor it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But sall things that are 4exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14 Therefore He says:

t“Awake, you who sleep,

Arise from the dead,

And Christ will give you light.”

Walk in Wisdom

15 uSee then that you walk 5circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 vredeeming the time, wbecause the days are evil.

17 xTherefore do not be unwise, but yunderstand zwhat the will of the Lord is. 18 And ado not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another bin psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making cmelody in your heart to the Lord, 20 dgiving thanks always for all things to God the Father ein the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 fsubmitting to one another in the fear of 6God.
