LIGHT UP THE DARK;
(Be Conscious That You Are Light)
TO THE BIBLE Ephesians 5:8-9 AMPC
“For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [lead the lives of those native-born to the Light]. For the fruit (the effect, the product) of the Light or the Spirit [consists] in every form of kindly goodness, uprightness of heart, and trueness of life.”
The above scripture is very explicit in its description of you; it says, “…you are light in the Lord….” Praise God! You’re the light because you’ve been born of God who is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. “And this is the message [the message of promise] which we have heard from Him and now are reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all [no, not in any way]” (1 John 1:5 AMPC). When you show up, every darkness is dispelled!
In John 8:12, the Lord Jesus said, “…I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life” (AMPC). What a declaration! He knew exactly who He was and was bold to declare it. Then, in Matthew 5:14, He called us the light of the world! We’re light just as He is light. You have to make bold declarations about who you are. You’re the light of the world; therefore, everywhere you go, light up the world. Some may scoff, or even get upset, at your audacity of faith; refuse to be moved; keep talking your faith.
Choose to walk in the reality of who you are in Christ: shine your light so brightly for others to see, and glorify your heavenly Father.
Colossians 1:12-13; Matthew 5:16
Dear Father, I thank you for qualifying me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light. Darkness has no place in me, for I’m native-born to the light. I manifest this light to my world ever so brightly today and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
