Bible: Ephesians 5:9-18

5:9 for the fruit of the light 1  consists in 2  all goodness, righteousness, and truth 5:10 trying to learn 3  what is pleasing to the Lord. 5:11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather 4  expose them. 5  5:12 For the things they do 6  in secret are shameful even to mention. 5:13 But all things being exposed by the light are made evident. 5:14 For everything made evident is light, and for this reason it says: 7 

“Awake, 8  O sleeper! 9 

Rise from the dead,

and Christ will shine on you! 10 

Live Wisely

5:15 Therefore be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise, 5:16 taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 5:17 For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise 11  by understanding 12  what the Lord’s will is. 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, which 13  is debauchery, 14  but be filled by the Spirit, 15
