“Any appearance of darkness tells about the absence of light”
In this series, we trust that the Lord will help us look into how we need to walk as light in this world because we have the light of life. We need to shine as light in this world because that is who we are and be solutions to this world. We must understand that our light is not just any light but a light of life, a light that gives life and also have life. Let’s look at
- WE BELONG TO A FAMILY OF LIGHT
“The family that a man comes from determines his character”
We must understand that we belong to a family of light, and that we expect to walk as light in this world, bringing light to everywhere that darkness is, disengaging the work of darkness everywhere we go to. Understanding that
- Jesus is light
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Jesus declares that He is the light of this world and that as we follow Him, we will have the light of life, that means not just any light but the light that has life. To darkness they may call their own also light but it has death in it, but the light that Jesus want to make us to come into is the light of life because He Himself is light. Jesus said that for Him as long as He is here on earth He is the light of the world
John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
This is what we must put in mind as God’s children that as long as we are in this world we are children of light, showing forth as light in this world. We also understand that Jesus is the true light that lights every man that comes to the world
John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
We understand also that God is light
- God is light and He Fathers it
We know by the word of God that God is light
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that GOD IS LIGHT, AND IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL.
You see, God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. Darkness is not found in Him, God is light. If darkness can not be found inside of God then darkness must not be found in us as we believe and walk with Him.
John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH on me should not abide in darkness.
Darkness are the engagement of the things of the world in a man’s heart. Darkness belongs to the devil. We also understand that God is the Father of light
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the FATHER OF LIGHTS, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
The light of the Father enlightens the world and the earth tremble. That’s who we need to walk. The light of life.
Psalms 97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
We saw that in the city of God, God is the One that lightens it even with the Lamb, Jesus Christ and we shall walk in the light therein
Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
21:24 And the NATIONS OF THEM WHICH ARE SAVED SHALL WALK IN THE LIGHT OF IT: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
Nation often refer to people or men in the scriptures, so you see that, we shall walk in the light of the Godhead. All that we see that the Jesus is as light and the Father is that’s what we ought to demonstrate in this world. We belong to the family of light.
