8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
It is my constant desire to live as the Lord commands. Of course, I can honestly admit that that is not only very difficult at times, but there are many times when I don’t live up to it at all. We all have moments in our lives when we are not exemplifying the light of the Lord. However, the scripture encourages us to be light and live as children of light. We remember how it was to live in darkness – before we accepted Christ we were in constant darkness. The things that we did wrong seemed right to us at the time. The people we hung out with, the places we went to – sometimes led us into further darkness. But as children of a Holy God, we are no longer enslaved by darkness – we have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light. Jesus is the spotlight – we are the spots behind The Light. Examine yourself today. Don’t look at others and what you think they are or aren’t doing. Don’t be the jury and judge for others, while failing to look at yourself. What does your walk look like? Are you living in the light? Are you allowing the Word of God to cleanse the dirt and darkness out of your life?
Live as light today so that a dying world can see the glory of the Lord shining through your life – it may be their only chance!
