Read: Ephesians 5:8-10
Walk As Children of Light
For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. Live as children of light (v.9) for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth.
When we trust Christ, and walk in his way we become children of light, and our lives bear the fruit of the light. As we journey through this Lenten season, how many in the dark are we ready to bring to light? How many are we ready to lift from the valley to the mountain top? How many are we going to put smiles back to their lives? Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14–16.)
Jesus further explained that no one lights a lamp just to hide it under a basket. A lamp is meant to be placed on a stand to give light to everything around it. Whether you're timid or outgoing, you're called to be a light to the people around you. Live so that others give glory to God. And live so that others see your life, hear your word, observe your works, and give glory to God.
Thank you, father, for your unconditional and everlasting love towards us. May we continue to grow more and more to be like you so that we can bring many in darkness to your light for the glory of God the almighty father, amen
