What does Paul instruct the church to do?

Why does our approaching salvation mean we are to do these things?

What deeds of darkness do you need to put aside? How can you refuse to gratify the desires of the sinful nature?

What do you think the armour of light is? What does it look like to clothe yourself with our Lord Jesus Christ? (to think this through further, see Colossians 3:12-14, Ephesians 5:1-20)

Pray

Thank God that the day is almost here, and that our salvation is approaching.

Repent of any deeds of darkness that you have yet to put aside.

Ask God for strength, courage, perseverance, mercy, hope, and help to deny the cravings of your sinful nature.

Ask God for the desire, joy, perseverance, and Spirit’s guidance so that you can clothe yourself with Jesus, and also that as a church we would live as children of the light.
