If we read Eph. 5: 3-6 we are reminded of a list of evil practices which God hates,
even as much as idolatry. We quote Eph. 5: 6:
"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the
wrath of God upon the children of disobedience."
Paul then wrote about the walk "as children of light" and verse 10 is a welcome guide:
"proving what is acceptable unto the Lord."
This word "acceptable" is the Greek euarestos and occurs seven times. Here is
another passage containing this word:
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your
mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God"
(Rom. 12: 2).
May we be given wisdom to walk in a way that is acceptable to the Lord, doing His
will, and being obedient to Him and His word. So, when our work is tested, we may not
suffer loss, but rejoice as we receive His approval.
