Living in the Light

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

The effect of having the light of God in our lives should be visible. You can’t hide a candle in a dark room.

Ephesians 5:8-9 Live as children of light  (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)  (NIV)

As a result of the light of God in our lives we should only do what is good and what is right and what is true. Our actions should consist of goodness, righteousness and truth. The fact that we have this ‘sunshine in our souls’ should be evident to all. We should live as children of light.
God’s light is available to each one of us.

John 3:19-21 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.   Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.

The fact of the matter is that light has come into the world. We can choose to live in this light.

John 1:4-5 Eternal life is in him, and this life gives light to all mankind. His life is the light that shines through the darkness.
Job 22:28 And the light of heaven will shine upon the road ahead of you.

God intended that we would be light bearers. People who carry His light into their areas of influence.

John 12:36 Make use of the Light while there is still time; then you will become light bearers.

What is this light?  It is simple the presence of God in our lives.

1 John 1:7 But if we are living in the light of God’s presence, just as Christ does, then we have wonderful fellowship & joy with each other, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin.
Matthew 6:22 If your eye is pure, there will be sunshine in your soul.
