"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Ephesians 5:15-21
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

How are you using your time? What is your relationship to time? Where are the areas of your life where time is being sucked and you have become apathetic? How does one redeem the time lost given to harmful and hateful habits?


Paul as a passionate friend and pastor to the Ephesians pleads with them to be filled with the Holy Spirit and not to be filled with wine. He calls them to sing songs to one another and to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. This is a hard text for us Western folks to hear. We love to drink wine and hate to submit. We love to isolate ourselves and hate singing. Join us as we look at Paul's message to Grow Up Because the Days are Evil!
