From the Kitchen Table
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. Eph 5:15-21
Live in love or you’ll live a lie. God created this life to be lived in love and if we live that way, we will make the most of this life. Ephesians chapter 5 begins with “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Living in love is where we will discover God’s will for our lives. The other things people do, such as, getting drunk, acting sexually immoral, speaking crudely and just being foolish with their lives will keep anyone from knowing the life God has planned and purchased for us. One of the most devasting things about living in sin is that it makes us selfish. But there’s something about making room in our hearts for the Holy Spirit that miraculously changes everything about us to look and live like Jesus. Receive the leadership of Holy Spirit in your life every day and let Him fill your heart, your mouth and your eyes with His love and you will possess life wherever you go. This life is the one that really works. Live in God’s love or you’ll live the devil’s lie.
