Walk as Light For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. Ephesians 5:8
Walk as Light For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) Ephesians 5:8-9
Walk as Light For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10
Walk as Light Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. Ephesians 5:11-13
Walk as Light This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:14
Take a Step ASK 1. If God’s light were to publicly expose all of my life – including my motives – what would everyone see? 2. What kind of influence do I have on the people I interact with? 3. In what ways am I covering up the light or preventing it from shining? Because of God’s great love for us, He gave us light in darkness. Christ came and paid our debt and made us His child. Now we are to reflect His light to the people around us.
Take a Step ACT 1.Today, I will consciously think about how I can be a light to every person I encounter. 2. Today, I will honestly evaluate whom I am trying to please with my life. 3. I commit myself to getting as much of God’s light into my life as I can. “You are the light of the world... let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14,16).
Walk as Light The darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining 1 John 2:8
