Walk in the Light
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.1 John 1:5
Always see yourself as walking in the light with the Lord, and always avoiding the darkness. Picture in your mind that walking in the light, you are walking on the narrow road toward the light of God. And when Satan temptations come avoid walking in darkness on the broad road, because in darkness we cannot see where we are going.
But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:23) Whatever we see in the world or in our imagination, make sure to avoid darkness, because how great is that darkness within us. Always remember light takes away darkness, but darkness cannot take away light.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16) We live each day seeing ourselves radiating the light of God, and we bring light to overcome darkness. We seek to always walk in the light, being a light to in this world, and we are spiritual warriors overcoming any and darkness that Satan tries to feed us.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (Matthew 5:16) If we follow Christ through the Spirit, we will be the light of life, and darkness will flee. We follow Christ and he will give his power to keep darkness away.
We show the light of Christ when we show kindness, help others, respect for everyone, and tell them about Christ. With hearts filled with the Lord’s love, being a light on hill is the desire of our hearts. We are created in the image of God which means our hearts are filled with God’s love.
Today see yourself as a light in this world, bringing the goodness of God to the world. Slow down inside and seek ways to be a light to others.
Prayer: Lord help me to be light to others, bringing brightness into their lives In Jesus name, Amen.
