Ephesians 5:8-14 - The Epistle Lectionary Passage for Sunday, Arpil 3, 2011
This is the NRVS translation of the lectionary epistle lesson for Sunday. This is also the passage I'll preach at Cove. Please make any comments concerning the passage you want. Together, let’s discuss the Word of God.
8For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light— 9for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. 10Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. 11Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12For it is shameful even to mention what such people do secretly; 13but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, 14for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
