Vain Words

Ephesians 5:6-7. “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.”

Vain words are empty words.  They are words that contain no substance, and especially no truth. In fact, they are misleading words that tempt us to go ahead and indulge in the sins of the flesh because they are “only normal, after all.”  God calls us to live an abnormal life. He calls us to aim for a higher standard, to live in the Spirit, to walk in truth, to put off the old man with its fleshly lusts and to put on the new man.

In fact, He promises that those who persist in living according to empty words will pay the price, promising His wrath on those who walk in the flesh.

Don’t take part with those who live contrary to God’s standard. You can expect only temporary, passing pleasure if you do. That pleasure quickly turns to sorrow, pain, and regret.
