Ephesiand 5:8. “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:”
Before we came to Jesus Christ for forgiveness and eternal life, we walked in darkness. But once we have come to Him and become His, we are turned from darkness into light. We are to walk (live out our lives ) as children of light, because we have trusted the Light of the World.
This is the first of another series of commands Paul gives for believers. There are 15 this time. We saw 20 in chapter four, verses 25-32. These commands clearly spell out the will of God for us. I love looking at it in that perspective, because it just elmininates all the fuss and feathers we tend to create when we talk about knowing God’s will.
It’s not that hard. He tells us.
