“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness,
righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord” (Ephesians

This verse tells us what you were and what you are, and from
this we have two assignments:

1. Live like what you are (goodness, righteousness, and truth).

2. Find out what pleases the Lord.

How do we live like children of the light? By grace! We are
saved by grace. We live by grace. We are forgiven by grace. We obey by grace.

How do we find out what pleases the Lord? First, want to
know what pleases the Lord. Second, read the Bible looking for truths to obey
by grace. Third, pray for spiritual acumen when you are reading the Bible.
