“So, you should be imitators of God, like dear children. Conduct yourselves in love, just as the Messiah Jesus loved us and gave himself for us, as a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice to God…
So, don’t get involved in the works of darkness., which all come to nothing. Instead, expose them! The things they do in secret, you see, are shameful even to talk about. But everything becomes visible when it’s exposed to light, since everything is visible in light. That’s why it says:
Wake up, you sleeper!
Rise up from the dead!
The Messiah will shine on you!
-from the Apostle Paul’s circular letter to Laodicea, called The Letter to the Ephesians
