Day 312 –
We are children of the Light.
1 Thessalonians 5:5 “For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.”
So why are we so afraid of the dark….
Think about it, what were you afraid of when you were little?
Were you ever afraid of the dark? Did you ever check under your bed and in the closet before you turned off the lights? What did your mom, dad or grandparents say when you were begging for that extended curfew? ‘Nothing good happens after “Dark” thirty‘. Right?!
Well if we are children of the day then we have no reason to fear the dark or live in the dark because it’s already light.
There is nothing to fear but fear itself and the perfect love of Jesus can drive out all fear! He is the Light, He is Love!
Im not saying we should be foolish, we need to be alert and ready to seek to fulfill what God wants from us. Never should we be idle, but continuing to work as we work for the Lord. And because we are children of the Day, we are filled with the greatest light, which is Hope….Hope for tomorrow and Hope for eternity.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
As soon as we Stop living in the dark then we can Seek to live in the light.
Living in the Light will strengthen us to encourage others in their faith. The light that shines brightly from us at all times and in all weather will help others to see that just as much good can happen in both the good and the bad, the easy and the hard, the day and the night. Living in the Light allows our hard times to build up others in their hard times.
Go live as A child of the Day and Shine like the SON!
