Ephesians - Children in the Light

Main Point: Jesus’s family is different.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
     
  • Have you ever been compared to one of your parents? Was it a positive or negative thing? Why?
     
  • Has your identity (whether as a student, parent, employee, etc.) dictated your actions? How so?

Read: Ephesians 5:1-21.

  • How do you learn to imitate someone?
     
  • Why is thankfulness an important replacement for “obscenity, foolish talk, or coarse joking?”
     
  • How or why are immoral, impure, and greedy people idolaters?
     
  • Paul writes that we were once darkness. What is significance of us being darkness, as opposed to just being in the darkness?
     
  • How can we expose the darkness?
     
  • What are some of the differences you see in how Christians live in comparison to non-Christians?
     
  • What steps can you put in place to be more like Jesus this week?
     
  • Everyone, regardless of ethnicity, gender, financial standing, has the same number of hours in a day. How will you use your next 24 hours to imitate God?

Prayer: Pray that you will reflect God’s light bright and proud.
