Let no one deceive you with empty talk; for it is because of these things that God's judgment is coming on those who disobey him.
So don't become partners with them!
For you used to be darkness; but now, united with the Lord, you are light. Live like children of light,
for the fruit of the light is in every kind of goodness, rightness and truth -
try to determine what will please the Lord.
Have nothing to do with the deeds produced by darkness, but instead expose them,
for it is shameful even to speak of the things these people do in secret.
But everything exposed to the light is revealed clearly for what it is,
since anything revealed is a light. This is why it says, "Get up, sleeper! Arise from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you!"
Therefore, pay careful attention to how you conduct your life - live wisely, not unwisely.
Use your time well, for these are evil days.
