    Breaking Open the Word [Ephesians 5:8-14]

    4th Sunday Lent, 2017

     
    In this passage St. Paul reminds Christians of Ephesus that the light of Christ has awaken them from the sleep of death to live in the light of new life in Christ. Ephesians accepted Christ because of Paul’s proclamation of the gospel; they now move in the light of Christ. Profession of faith in Christ shapes their attitude toward the world and its social, cultural, political systems. Paul says that their conversion is a radical change of heart; they made an option to live for what represents light and a denunciation of
