Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 5:11


5:11 Reprove them - To avoid them is not enough.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 5:11


Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. See Eph 5:7. Works of darkness are those which please the powers of darkness. The Christian must have nothing whatever to do with these. We must not countenance any sinful device, but rather reprove it. This would prevent the patronage of many things which the world countenances.

    When praying for a word to give you the Lord laid Ephesians 5 on my heart. When I read it I began to pick out certain scriptures and the Lord would whisper "No, I said Ephesians 5" So I believe the Lord wants you to read the whole chapter. I love you, Randy......always will.
