At one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. The fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true.

Ephesians 5:8 (ESV)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

We have been lifted up out of a world of deep darkness, into the light of the glorious gospel of God’s grace. Our walk through this life as His children, is to become a day-by-day lifestyle, that is pleasing and honouring to the Lord.

Our life-walk should be a reflection of His goodness and grace, His righteousness and integrity, His kindness and gentleness, His truth and His sincerity. Our Christian life should reflect His humility and patient endurance, and our life should blossom into godly fruitfulness, reflecting the love of God in the face of Christ Jesus our Lord.

At once time we were children of the night and the product of darkness is sin. It was prideful rebellion against the Lord Who bought us, and we should shun the unfruitful works of darkness and expose them.. but now we are saved by grace and are living in the light of the Lord.. and the fruit of Christ light is discovered in all that is good and righteous and godly and true.

Our union with Christ has brought us into the light of His grace and truth, and the fruit of the Spirit should be manifest in all we say and do. Let us walk in the light as He is in the light so that the fruit of His love will be displayed in all we are. Let us live our lives as children of the light so that the light of the glorious gospel of grace may become a witness to the world that we are children of God and partakers of His divine nature – so that others may see our holy conduct and glorify our Father Who is in heaven.

My Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, how I long to reflect the light of Your love as I journey through this dark world.  Thank You for bringing me into the wonderful light of Your saving grace. Please help me to walk in spirit and truth so that I may be used as a channel through whom Your love, grace, healing and forgiveness may flow to others. In the name of Jesus I pray.. AMEN
