“Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret” (Ephesians 5:11-12).

Live your life such that if it were all filmed there would be nothing for which you would need to be ashamed.  This is not seeking to modify your behavior.   Too many promote that.  It is seeking for you to be like Christ in thought, word, and deed.  Let your life be an open book and do not hinder what the Holy Spirit is doing in You.  You have been called through Your baptism to become whom God is making you to be. Have an attitude of gratitude!

Lord, You know all.  You know what You are doing and You have given me eyes to see and ears to hear.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way of life in order that I would walk with You and be led into the obedience to which I have been called.  Help me to be steadfast in the living of this life You have given me.  Guide me to live out my calling according to Your will.

Lord Jesus, You have told us that You would lead the way.  You are not only the example of the godly life, but by Your grace, the only way we can live into the godly life.  Lead me today, Lord Jesus, in the way I need to go.  Guide me by Your Spirit to become whom You are leading me to be so that I would be conformed to Your image.  Through all things, help me to be intentional about the kind of life I am living.  Amen.
