NT
Ephesians 5:1-21
esv
Therefore be imitators of God,
as beloved children.
actionmanner
And walk in love,
as Christ loved us
and [as Christ] gave himself up for us,
a fragrant offering [to God,]
and [a] sacrifice to God.
series
progression
But sexual immorality [must not even be named among you,]
and all impurity [must not even by named among you,]
or covetousness must not even be named among you,
as is proper among saints.
Let there be no filthiness
nor foolish talk
nor crude joking,
which are out of place,
but instead let there be thanksgiving.
negativepositive
bilateral
For you may be sure of this,
that everyone who is sexually immoral
or [who is] impure,
or who is covetous
( that is, an idolater),
has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

ideaexplanation
ground
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 become partners with them;
for at one time you were darkness,
but now you are light in the Lord.
Walk as children of light
(for the fruit of light is found in all that is good
and [the fruit of light is found in all that is] right
and [the fruit of light is found in all that is] true),
and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,
but instead expose them.
For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.
But when anything is exposed by the light,
it becomes visible,
for anything that becomes visible is light.
Therefore it says,
“Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
inference
situationresponse
Look carefully then how you walk,
not as unwise
but as wise,
making the best use of the time,
because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be foolish,
but understand what the will of the Lord is.
And do not get drunk with wine,
for that is debauchery,
but be filled with the Spirit,
addressing one another in psalms
and [addressing one another in] hymns
and [addressing one another in] spiritual songs,
singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,
giving thanks always [to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,]
and [giving thanks] for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
