WALK AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT


 

Today’s Reading:

Ephesians 5:8-14

 


Apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians and in particular Chapter 5, talks about ‘CHANGE’. He shows that believers in Christ are different from the world around them, and since we are different, we should walk and live lives that are different. The simple truth is that believers should be different from those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ.


I want to take the verses read today (Eph. 5:8-14) and point out some insights that speak to us about “Walking as Children of Light”. We live in a hard, dark world, a world that is dominated and driven by Sin. In the midst of darkness and depravity (immoral act), God has redeemed us. He has redeemed a people that He expected to be different. He has redeemed a people He has empowered to be different, verse 8 says ‘For you were sometimes darkness but now are you light in the Lord’. That means we have been made changed and different. We were lost and in the darkness of sin and depravity. We were blinded by the god of this world,( 2 Cor 4:4.) We lived like every other lost person, and we enjoyed it, Eph.2:1-3.


We have been bought by a price and now we are light in the Lord. When the Lord saved us, He delivered us from the darkness. Colossians 1:13 Says “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of his dear Son”. We are set free from the power of sin. He changed and made us Children of the light. Since we have been changed, we are to walk in the light and no longer in the darkness that once characterized us. Every believer must consider Romans 13:12-14, which says “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us, therefore, cast off the work of darkness and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness not in strife and enjoying. But put on ye the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof”.

If we are truly saved, and if we have been profoundly changed, then holiness should be a way of life for us! (2Cor.5:17).


The world today is experiencing again what we have recorded in the book of Genesis Chapter 1 in verse 2 which says, “And the earth was without form and void and DARKNESS was upon the face of the deep”. As God called out Light in the beginning, believers are being called out today as Children of light and Light personified to Illuminate the dark world. The world needs the Light, We have to show them. It is the Lord's will that His Children be light in a dark world. It is the power of His light within us that will highlight the differences between us and the lost world around us.

Let us seek the Lord today and ask Him to help us “Walk As Children of Light”.
