Walk in the light, For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:“Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” Ephesians 5:8-14 (NKJV)
As new follower’s of Christ we were all dead to the lord as sinners. We came out of the darkness of unfruitful works and we are now light in the lord. For most of my life I walked in the darkness, I was a sinner and I was definitely unfruitful, I knew no other way of life. But now I am light in the lord! To be one with the lord we need to continue to be awake, stay out of the darkness, and shine in the light. We must be alive with Christ and continue to turn away from sin.
Dear heavenly father,
I realize that your only begotten son died for our sins. I ask that you forgive me of my sins and continue to give me light. Help me to stay in this light and continue on this path of righteousness and freedom of a sinless life. I thank you lord for pointing this scripture out to me and helping me understand it’s meaning, Amen
