“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:7 [ESV]
If we are Christians (those that have found saving faith in Jesus) we are those that have been rescued from the kingdom of darkness and brought into Christ’s marvelous light…
– “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” – Colossians 1:13-14 [ESV]
– “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Peter 2:9 [ESV]
Then we as Christians live with our eyes open to Christ’s gracious light. Because of His light, we are able to see how to follow where He leads us. We have the ability to reveal His light to the darkness in our communities.
So as redundant as it may seem, this is my prayer for believers today and tomorrow…
May Jesus Christ continue to give us His light to see Him as He is, to follow Him as He leads, and to live in a way that displays His marvelous light to the world in need.
By His Grace. Through His Gospel. For His Glory.
