Ephesians 5.3-6: Walk as a child of light—separate from darkness.
You are a child of light, so walk like it. Wake up and separate from darkness!
In Ephesians 5 Paul exhorts us to walk as children of light. We need to walk in a way that is worthy of our vocation (Eph 4: our "job" to be and make disciples). And that means we need to walk as the children of light that we already are in Christ (Eph 5.8).
We need to wake up and separate from darkness (v3-6) so we can separate to the light of God (v7-14). And God calls us to a separation that goes beyond the superficial and touches our reputation.
