Rev. Ken Lunsford based his sermon on Ephesians 5:15-20. The text describes what a community of faith might look and even smell like; it is the “fragrance” of Christ.
Paul was writing the church at Ephesus and giving advice how to live a fulfilling life. Paul had found great joy in living for Christ and he wanted others to experience that same joy. Paul had found meaning and purpose and a reason for being.
Paul writes do not get drunk on wine but to be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. He asked them to sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.
Here is the secret to a wondrous life: “Be very careful how you live not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity.”
