Plum Creek Christian Church

Ephesians chapter 5:1-7, Be imitators of Christ...among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity, or greed. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk, or coarse joking...For this you can be sure no immoral person-has any inheritance in the kingdom of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them.

Just as children imitate their parents we too should imitate our heavenly Father. We are to become like Christ if we claim to be Christ followers. Paul was not telling Christians they could not have any contact with nonbelievers. He was however saying they need not condone their sins. By remaining quiet about sin we are not taking a stand. We need to expose the darkness with the light of truth. Be aware the days are evil. If we are going to stay strong we have to take a stand for what is right. God doesn’t need politically correct Christians. He needs spiritual warriors who will go to battle to save souls that are lost. Without the salvation of Jesus the lost people have no hope of eternal life. What are you doing for the Kingdom of God. If you like the rest of the world remain tolerant of sin who are you in danger of not reaching? Speak the truth in love. Spread the good news of Jesus Christ. It is good for the soul!
