Ephesians 5

If there is ever a "fake it until you make it" motive in the Christian life it is in Eph. 5:1. Be imitators of God.

The emphasis here and at the end of chapter four on wholesome speech is very important. Nothings shows your heart, good or bad, like your words.

I want to live my life from Ephesians 5:15-18.
  • Walk as wise people.
  • Redeem the time.
  • Understand God's will.
  • Don't be drunk.
  • Be filled with the Spirit.
I don't need many other reasons to be reminded of the sacredness of marriage more than this. Paul set out talking about marriage and ended up (Eph. 5:32) talking about Jesus. I hope that happens when people talk about my marriage.
