Following is a different Bible Version of the Scripture that I shared just before this one. Both versions are eye-opening. Mary
Ephesians 5:11-16 The Message Bible
Don't waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are.
It's a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one else will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the Light of Christ (the Anointed One and His Anointing).
Wake up from your sleep, climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the Light! So watch your step ... use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times.
Reverend Robert W. & Mary C. Butler
