Ephesians 5:9-10

King James Version

9 (For the fruit of the Spirit 

is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

There is the laundry list.

The grocery list.

The shopping list.

The bucket list.

But do you know there's a more important list?

Of things to do, on the road to righteousness?

SPIRIT guided me to gather it this morning.

Just from one chapter written by apostle Paul.

Here's how we can honor GOD, self, and others.

Through a BORN AGAIN list:

Ephesians 5:1

King James Version

5 Be ye therefore followers of God, 

as dear children;

Ephesians 5:2

King James Version

2 And walk in love, 

as Christ also hath loved us, 

and hath given himself for us 

an offering and a sacrifice to God 

for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians 5:3

King James Version

3 But fornication, 

and all uncleanness, 

or covetousness, 

let it not be once named among you, 

as becometh saints;

Ephesians 5:4

King James Version

4 Neither filthiness, 

nor foolish talking, 

nor jesting, 

which are not convenient: 

but rather giving of thanks.

Ephesians 5:6-7

King James Version

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: 

for because of these things cometh the wrath of God 

upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

Ephesians 5:8

King James Version

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, 

but now are ye light in the Lord: 

walk as children of light:

Ephesians 5:11-12

King James Version

11 And have no fellowship 

with the unfruitful works of darkness, 

but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things 

which are done of them in secret.

Ephesians 5:14-16

King James Version

14 Wherefore he saith, 

Awake thou that sleepest, 

and arise from the dead, 

and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, 

not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, 

because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:17

King James Version

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, 

but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Ephesians 5:18

King James Version

18 And be not drunk with wine, 

wherein is excess; 

but be filled with the Spirit;

Ephesians 5:19

King James Version

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms 

and hymns 

and spiritual songs, 

singing and making melody in your heart 

to the Lord;

Ephesians 5:20

King James Version

20 Giving thanks always 

for all things unto God and the Father 

in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Ephesians 5:21

King James Version

21 Submitting yourselves one to another 

in the fear of God.

Ephesians 5:22-24

King James Version

22 Wives, 

submit yourselves unto your own husbands, 

as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, 

even as Christ is the head of the church: 

and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, 

so let the wives be to their own husbands 

in every thing.

Ephesians 5:25-29

King James Version

25 Husbands, 

love your wives, 

even as Christ also loved the church, 

and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it 

with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, 

not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; 

but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives 

as their own bodies. 

He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; 

but nourisheth and cherisheth it, 

even as the Lord the church:

Ephesians 5:30-31

King James Version

30 For we are members of his body, 

of his flesh, 

and of his bones.

31 For this cause shall a man 

leave his father and mother, 

and shall be joined unto his wife, 

and they two shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 5:33

King James Version

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular 

so love his wife even as himself; 

and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
