Ephesians 5:1-7 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
1 You are the children that God dearly loves. So be just like him. 2 Lead a life of love, just as Christ did. He loved us. He gave himself up for us. He was a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice to God. 3 There should not be even a hint of sexual sin among you. Don't do anything unclean. And do not always want more and more. Things like that are not what God's holy people should do. 4 There must not be any unclean speech or foolish talk or dirty jokes. All of them are out of place. Instead, you should give thanks. 5 Here is what you can be sure of. Those who give themselves over to sexual sins are lost. So are people whose lives are not pure. The same is true of those who always want more and more. People who do those things might as well worship statues of gods. No one who does them will receive a share in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Don't let anyone fool you with words that don't mean anything. Because of things like that, God is angry with those who don't obey. 7 So don't go along with people like that.
