We “walk in Love” by avoiding ungodly behavior. We must restrain ourselves from ungodly behavior because of our love for the Lord Jesus. Klyne Snodgrass wrote, “If one is joined to Christ and shares in him, one cannot share in the lives of those practicing sexual sin and greed” (cf. 2 Cor. 6:14)
In this passage Paul cites several sins that constitute a dark life. He says that if we claim to belong to the Lord Jesus these sins should “not even be heard of among you” (Eph. 5:3) and that they are “not suitable” fora believer (Eph. 5:4)
Paul mentions the following sins in this discourse:
- Sexual Immorality and impunity (Eph. 5:3 a)
- Greed (Eph. 5:3 b)
- Corrupt speech (Eph. 5:4)
He gives a warning to those who would engage in these sins in Eph. 5:5-6.
