Though you once were darkness,
now as Christians you are light.
Prove yourselves at home in the light,
for where light is, there is a harvest of goodness, righteousness, and truth.
Learn to judge for yourselves what is is pleasing to God.
Take no part in the barren deeds of darkness,
but show them up for what they are.
It would be shameful to even mention what is done in secret.
But everything is shown up by being exposed to the light,
and whatever is exposed to the light itself becomes light.
That is why it is said:
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine upon you.
