Second Reading for the 4th Sunday of Lent Year A

Ephesians 5:8-14

Summary: You were once in darkness, but now you are in the light of the Lord. Live as children of light, exposing darkness, and Christ will give you light.

Live as Children of Light

Brothers and sisters: You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.

Live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth.

Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

Take no part in the fruitless works of darkness; rather expose them, for it is shameful even to mention the things done by them in secret; but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for everything that becomes visible is light.

Therefore, it says: “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”
