For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light…
God is light, and when we walk in the light we walk with Him and in Him. Let me share with you three keys to walking in the light we have been given. Psalm 119:130 tells us the entrance of the Word gives light. Take time to go through the New Testament and begin to daily declare who the Word says you now are in Christ Jesus. For example, you are more than a conqueror. The more you declare these truths about the new you on the inside, the more they will help you walk in that light on the outside.
Psalm 119:105 tells us His Word is a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path. Begin to practice what scripture teaches us as it relates to our actions in life. Anything you take time to practice you get good at. Hebrews 5:14 tells us that through reason of use, practicing the Word, we will mature and be able to discern between good and evil. That would be walking in the light.
In 1 John 2:10 we are told he who walks in love abides in the light. We need to be walking in the love of God every day. Doing so is a choice we make. God’s love is not a feeling, but a fruit of our new spirit nature. We simply need to practice treating others the way we would want them to treat us. When we do, we abide in the light of God’s love. Take time to practice these three things and you can walk as children of light.
