Be Wise

Re: Verse reading- Psalm 24:1-6; Ephesians 5:1-16 (day four) Salvation is not passive…we do not accept God’s gift of grace and then sit back to enjoy the fruits.  We surrender our lives.  “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.(Galatians 2:20)  As a result of our surrender, we seek to live a life that imitates Christ.  Imitation means that we look like Him.  There are things we do…walk in love, keep clean hands, maintain a pure heart, give thanks.  There are things we don’t do…no immoral behavior, no filthiness or coarse jesting, no idolatry, no deceitfulness or disobedience.  When we are imitators of Christ, His life shines through us to a lost world.  Walk like Christ and be wise!
