Acceptable Unto the Lord

Book of Ephesians

A Sermon on Ephesians 5:8-10

for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. (ESV)

The fruit of the Christian life; the words 'goodness' and 'righteousness' examined; a good man is a balanced man; righteousness brings in legal notions and conceptions; no righteousness without godliness; the truth of God revealed in the life of the Christian; the people of light; proving what is acceptable to the Lord; the characteristic of the Christian.
