Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children.
And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.
But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints.
And coarse and foolish talking or crude joking are not suitable, but rather giving thanks.
For know and recognize this: no sexually immoral or impure or greedy person, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of the Messiah and of God.
Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for because of these things God's wrath is coming on the disobedient.
Therefore, do not become their partners.
For you were once darkness, but now [you are] light in the Lord. Walk as children of light--
for the fruit of the light [results] in all goodness, righteousness, and truth--
discerning what is pleasing to the Lord.
Don't participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead, expose them.
