Ephesians Chapter 5 : 11-20 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 11 Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them.
  • 12 For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.
  • 13 But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that reveals is light.
  • 14 Therefore he says, "Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
  • 15 Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise;
  • 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
  • 17 Therefore don't be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
  • 18 Don't be drunken with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,
  • 19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing, and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
  • 20 giving thanks always concerning all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father;
  • Open English Bible [OEB]
  • 11 Take no part in deeds of darkness, from which no good can come; on the contrary, expose them.
  • 12 It is degrading even to speak of the things continually done by them in secret.
  • 13 All such actions, when exposed, have their true character made manifest by the light.
  • 14 For everything that has its true character made manifest is clear as light. And that is why it is said – ‘Sleeper, awake! Arise from the dead, And the Christ will give you light!’
  • 15 Take great care, then, how you live – not unwisely but wisely,
  • 16 making the most of every opportunity; for these are evil days.
  • 17 Therefore do not grow thoughtless, but try to understand what the Lord’s will is.
  • 18 Do not drink wine to excess, for that leads to profligacy; but seek to be filled with the Spirit of God, and speak to one another in psalms and hymns and sacred songs.
  • 19 Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord.
  • 20 Always give thanks for everything to our God and Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
