Grace is not an excuse to live an unclean, perverse life of excess as many pulpits encourage these days.
Jesus calls and empowers Christians to live pure, holy lives that honor God and His Kingdom.
The next verse in Ephesians tells us that even our conversation should be evidence of our born-again experience.
Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. Ephesians 5:4 KJV
How does your life measure up? Are you walking in the carnal flesh realm or the spirit realm? There is a glaring difference.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Galatians 5:19-24 KJV
It’s a matter of life and death.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV
