Join us as we explore Paul's letter to the church at Ephesus. The book of Ephesians is a grand yet concise summary of the good news of the Christian gospel, followed by practical exhortations for living out this faith in the midst of everyday life in church, community, and family.
Read Ephesians 5:15-20
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ponder for a few minutes how much time you waste every day. Be full of grace toward yourself, but at the same time, be honest. What tends to steal your time? The internet? Gossip? Television? Online games? What might God be saying to you through this Scripture?
God, help us to be very careful with our days, making the most of each moment. Amen.
