Imitators Of God

2 and practice living in love, just as Christ loved you too and gave Himself for you as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 3 But sexual vice and any form of immorality or sensual greed must not so much as be mentioned among you, as that is the only course becoming in God's people; 4 there must be no indecency, silly talk or suggestive jesting, for they are unbecoming. There should be thanksgiving instead.
