Ephesians 5:8

8 You yourselves used to be in the darkness, but since you have become the Lord's people, you are in the light. So you must live like people who belong to the light,

Ephesians 5:8 In-Context

6 Do not let anyone deceive you with foolish words; it is because of these very things that God's anger will come upon those who do not obey him.
7 So have nothing at all to do with such people.
8 You yourselves used to be in the darkness, but since you have become the Lord's people, you are in the light. So you must live like people who belong to the light,
9 for it is the light that brings a rich harvest of every kind of goodness, righteousness, and truth.
10 Try to learn what pleases the Lord.
