For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So, live as people of light! - Ephesians 5:8 NLT
Our choices define who we are. They create the person we want to be and the person we want to become. If we want to fulfill God’s purpose for us by becoming like Jesus, we have to choose to walk in the light as He is in the light. This takes an awareness of what we are choosing.
I watched a movie about a girl who had to relive her last day of her life until she got it right. Through the movie you see her choices, and they are never the right choices until she figures out what she is doing wrong. When she finally wakes up on the ultimate last day, she says she knows what she has to do and she isn’t afraid. What she chose was love. She loved everyone and everything she came in contact with. She shed light by encouraging others, complimenting them, hugging them, saying “I love you,” listening to what they had to say. I realized through the movie that my choices determine if I’m living in the light. When we choose to walk in His light, when we choose to love, we are creating a bright future!
1. Think about what you chose yesterday. Did you shed light?
2. What can you do today to shed more of God's light?
Father God, help me to recognize when I’m falling into darkness. Remind me to always look to Jesus, who is my beacon of light, to guide me and lead me. Help me to hear the Holy Spirit direct me into truth, justice, mercy, love, humility, and obedience. Amen.
