‘Be very careful how you live’ (Ephesians 5:15).
This is for all of us – in every situation of life.
How are we to live?
- We are to ‘be filled with the Spirit’ (Ephesians 5:18).
- We are to give thanks to God the Father (Ephesians 5:20).
- We are to have ‘reverence for Christ’ (Ephesians 5:21).
Careful living emerges from true spirituality. It is not a matter of rules and regulations. It is a matter of love for Jesus.
We’re not to be like the Pharisees: ‘On the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy’, ‘These people honour Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me’ (Matthew 23:28; Mark 7:6).
Take care – because you love Jesus!
