Ephesians 5:1-21

https://www.bible.com/bible/116/EPH.5.1-21

Take 2 minutes to relax. Pray and draw your focus to God. Thank God for something that has happened in the past day.

I, like many, have a well practised ability to procrastinate. Once I get into the flow it’s fine but until I get going I am liable to wander! Here then is a challenge from Paul – to make the best use of our time. I don’t think this is a ban on relaxing, just a request to be purposeful. Don’t just drift, be it to facebook, another glass of wine or to any number of other distractions. Set time for relaxation and be purposeful about its content. Set time for work and be purposeful about what you do and why. What we focus our time and energies into defines who we are and how we grow. Who, when making an active decision about what to do, would consciously choose sin? Yet when we don’t make any active decision we can find ourselves drifting into sin. One thing just leads to another.

UP:

Is there anything in the passage that impacts your relationship with God?

IN:

Are there ideas that need to be unpacked and worked through with those close to you?

OUT:

Does the passage challenge you to respond to the world, to practically work out your faith?
