March 29 Lenten Reflection, Ephesians 5:8-14, Mark Stevens

You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, so live your life as children of light. Light produces fruit that consists of every sort of goodness, justice, and truth. Therefore test everything to see what’s pleasing to the Lord, and don’t participate in the unfruitful actions of darkness. Instead you should reveal the truth about them. It’s embarrassing to even talk about what certain persons do in secret. But everything exposed to the light is revealed by the light. Everything that is revealed by the light is light. Therefore it says, Wake up, sleeper! Get up from the dead and Christ will shine on you.

Ephesians 5:8-14, Common English Bible
