Ephesians 5:8-10

  1. Read Eph. 5:8-10 to remind yourselves of the text preached this morning. 
  2. What is an “indicative” in Scripture? What is an “imperative” in Scripture? What is the difference between the two, and how are they related? 
  3. What were you formerly before the light of Christ shone upon you? How does someone bask or enjoy the light of Jesus Christ? 
  4. Has anyone, on their own, moved from a state of darkness to a state of light through their works? Why is it impossible for man to move from darkness to light on their own? 
  5. How did Christ bring sinners from darkness to light? See John 1:1-13. 
  6. What does it mean to receive the Gospel by the grace of God? Why is this important to know? 
  7. What is one major proof that someone has received the Gospel by God’s grace? See 1 John 2:3-6. 
  8. What does it mean to “walk as children of light (Eph. 5:8c)?” When we “walk as children of light” what do we reflect or display to others? Why does this matter? 
  9. What does it mean for our practice in life, to match our position in Christ? 
  10. How do you walk as children of light — see Eph. 5:10. Why should our goal in life be to please Christ? How do you please Christ — see Deut. 6:1-9; Rom. 12:1-2, Phil. 1:20-29, 2:12-17, 3:12-16, 4:8-9; 1 Thess. 4:1-12; 1 Tim. 6:11-16; 2 Tim. 2:1-26.
