Ephesians 1:15   For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints,

1:16   I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,

1:17   that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him,

1:18  having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,

1:19   and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might

1:20   that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,

1:21   far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

1:22   And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church,

1:23   which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

Ephesians 5:8  …….at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

5:9  (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),

5:10   and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

Eph 5:11   Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

5:12   For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.

5:13   But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,

5:14   for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."

John 20:1-18 (New International Version)

The Empty Tomb

20:1-8pp -- Mt 28:1-8; Mk 16:1-8; Lk 24:1-10

1 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!" 3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, 7 as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus' head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. 8 Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. 9 (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

10 Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11 but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. 13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?" "They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. 15 "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?" Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him." 16 Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said, "Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.' " 18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: "I have seen the Lord!" And she told them that he had said these things to her.
