Verse of the Day

Ephesians 5:8-9

For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.

Ephesians 5:8-9

Live in the Light

The Bible refers to light and dark many times. Sin is often referred to as darkness and God is often referred to as light. So, when someone comes to know the Lord, His Word tells us that that person is transferred from the darkness and into the light. It is almost as if He picks us up out of the darkness and puts us where we can see. It is difficult to make decisions in the dark. You cannot see what is in front of you or all around you, so your decisions are made based on what you hear no on what you can see. In the light, you can see everything. It is much easier to make decisions when you were living in the light.

God transferred us to the light so we would live in the light! Why would you go back to the darkness when the light is so much better? Examine your life today and pray that God would help you remain in the light!

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
You are the light of my life. May I constantly find my hope, joy, and life in the light instead of trying to move toward the darkness. Thank you for rescuing me from darkness. Amen.
