When I read Ephesians 4: 17-32, I give thanks that I can have a new life. I no longer dwell in my sinful deeds. Instead, I am ‘created in the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness’. Instead, all my actions can testify and glorify Him. I can honour His name with my life.
Recently, news regarding to guns and racism have been on the news. Many people nowadays use hatred to fight hatred, which leads to the continuation of darkness among people.
The verses also mentioned an environment that is filled with goodness, which many people want. This environment can only be found in God and in His family. This also motivates me to preach more and save more people so that they can enjoy what I am enjoying. They are not meant to be in darkness or being evil.
