Ephesians 5:8 tells us that we are to walk as children of light in this world. This is a sin cursed world, and is characterized by darkness, because it is controlled by Satan. The only way we can have light is to be filled by the Spirit. In our flesh is no light at all, but as the light of God is shined through us through the Holy Spirit we can have the influence that God desires. That light is manifested by how those who are around us respond. Light reveals sin, and that light brings conviction in the lives of others. When you walk into a break room, does the conversation suddenly change? When you are around others, do they apologize for their “colorful” language? As believers our presence should convict others, but in order for that to happen, we have to live in the light. The only way we can to that is to be transformed by the power of the Spirit as we apply the Word of God to our lives. Let you light so shine today, that men may see your good works and glorify your father who is in heaven.
