Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. – Ephesians 5:1-2.
“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” – Ephesians 5:14-21.
Be ye therefore followers of God my brothers and sisters. To walk in Love is to share the Word, the everlasting Gospel. Loving your neighbor as yourself is to feed them with the Word, as we have been fed. “Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.” Everything that is in this world is in direct opposition to the Spirit. “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the Law.” – Galatians 5:17-18.
“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.” “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
Are You Risen With Christ? For Where Your Treasure Is, There Will Your Heart Be Also.
May the Everlasting Father, the Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The Prince of Peace, bestow upon you all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus our Lord.
