A reading from the letter of Paul to the Ephesians.
Keep careful watch over your conduct. Do not act like fools, but like wise and thoughtful people. Make the most of your time, for these are evil days. Do not continue in ignorance, but try to discern the will of God. Avoid getting drunk on wine – that is debauchery! Instead be filled with the Spirit, meditate on psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Sing praise to God with all your hearts. Give thanks to Abba God always and in everything, in the name of Jesus our Messiah.
The Word of God recorded in the letter of Paul to the Ephesians.
