Let No One Deceive You, We Follow Jesus
Bible Verse Ephesians 5:6-10
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
Before our salvation, we were slaves to sin and lived in darkness. Jesus rescued us from that darkness and brought us into the light of God's kingdom. So we as followers of Christ, can never forget the darkness hates the light. And therefore it hates us because we follow Jesus. We came out of the darkness and declared Jesus our Lord and Master and because of that the darkness will do anything it can to deceive us and get us to stray away from Jesus. We have to remember those who are perishing have a supernatural hatred for God and the things of God.
In addition, they do not have the wisdom of God. Instead, they have the empty desires of perishing flesh. Therefore, we are not to be associated and partake in activities which are in direct rebellion against God's Law and His word. We are not to return to our former lives and live like those who hate God, hate His word and hate Jesus our Lord and have contempt for the Holy Spirit. In other words, we do not help them in their rebellion instead we shine the light of the Gospel into the darkness to find those whom God has called. And we walk in the light redeeming the time for the day is short and this world is passing away and our search for those who are lost is of the utmost importance.
