Unfruitful Works of Darkness

Book of Ephesians

A Sermon on Ephesians 5:8-13

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. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, (ESV)

A life consistent with our profession of faith; darkness affects the mind and intellect; the unbeliever is ignorant of His need of salvation; darkness affects the heart and the emotions; conduct is the result of a point of view; the error of the non-Christian system; how darkness is manifested in the will; why the works of darkness are unfruitful.
