Ephesians 5 Conversation

Thank you for joining us in listening to Ephesians 5! If you haven't listened to it yet, you can do so here. Access a written copy of Ephesians 5 in the NLT here.

We would love to hear your thoughts on this passage of scripture. Below are some questions that made us think. Feel free to answer one or all of them! You can also comment with any other questions or thoughts about the chapter.

Discussion Questions

1. In the first half of Ephesians 5, Paul writes about different kinds of “deeds of darkness”— sins. He mentions sexual impurity, greed, and inappropriate language. Paul says one of the causes of these sins is idolatry, which is the worship of anything or anyone other than God. We ALL struggle with sin, but we are called to fight it and put God first in our lives. Sin destroys and God gives life!

-What are some ways we can protect ourselves from sexual impurity, greed, and inappropriate language?

-How can you put God first in your life?

2. In verse 8, we learn that Christians are “light” in the Lord! Paul explains that people who are light act in a way that is good, righteous, and true. Jesus is THE Light of the World and the ultimate example in how to live as light.

-How can you get to know Jesus better this week?

3. Paul writes in that Christians are to “submit to one another out of reverence for Christ” (verse 21). We are to put the needs of others before our own and love them, even when it’s hard.

-Is there someone who is especially hard for you to submit to? Why?
