We live in a world where the profane has become prolific and that which is twisted and perverse is celebrated and indulged in.
But as Christians, we are not called to live from a place of lust (what I can get for myself) but from a place of love (what I can give). Believers are called to purity, holiness, and righteousness – no matter how dark and polluted the world around them becomes.
In Ephesians 5, Paul exhorts the early church to walk in love (the Kingdom of light – the Kingdom of Jesus Christ) rather than walk in lust (the Kindgom of darkness).
In this episode, we explore Paul’s exhortation to Christians in Ephesians 5 and are pressed to answer the question – from which kingdom am I living … the place of love or the perverseness of lust?
