DAY 8 WEDNESDAY: AUGUST 2018

BE BOLD BECAUSE YOU ARE LIGHT!

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the world. Walk as children of light (Ephesians 5:8).

In the opening text, the Bible says that you were once darkness, but now you are the light in the world. Therefore, you are expected to walk as a child of light. Anyone walking in the light is bold and confident. That is why the Psalmist says in Psalm 27:1, “The Lord is my light and salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Light is synonymous with boldness and freedom.

Moreover Jesus Christ declared vividly in John 8:12 thus, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Light gives illumination, vision and boldness. Whoever that is walking in the light of God does not in anyway live in fear because he is bold and confident. That is the reason why the Bible says in Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.”

In fact before you became a Christian, you once walked in darkness; but now, you are a child of light. It is an aberration for a Christian to still remain in darkness even after being saved. Jesus Christ saved you and brought you into light so that you can become light to the world. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Matthew 5:14, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Therefore, your light is expected to shine forth and bring glory to God (Matthew 5:16). However, you are indeed the light of the world.

Daily Tip: You are light because Jesus Christ the light of the world is in you. Therefore, let your light shine forth and bring glory to the Lord. Shalom!

Golden Text: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
