A New Way of Living for a New World
Today's reading offers some practical descriptions of the way that Christians should live as they become citizens of God's new world. Christians must make a sharp break with their old lives, turning their backs on their current vulgar lifestyles -- no more lying, cheating, lusting, backbiting ways. Instead, filled with God's truth and love, they must live as children of the light: embracing all as God embraces all, seeking God's truth, and living in peace. What is more, there is the possibility that others might see their behavior and recognize God's truth for their own lives.
