Children of the Light

Ephesians 5:1, 8, 11 (KJV)
1 "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children . . .
8 "For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light . . .
11 "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
To walk in the light means that we walk in wisdom. Not like fools, but as wise men and women of God. We need to redeem the time because the Bible says these days that we are living in are evil. So let's get a better understanding of the will of the Lord.
Be careful and be wise in the decisions that you make, not as the foolish do. Adam Clarke states that worship with drinking and partying make one act as a madman; “running about, tossing their heads from shoulder to shoulder, appearing to be in every sense completely frantic."
David Guzik says that walking in the light means constantly being filled with the Holy Spirit. “The filling of the Holy Spirit is not a one-time event that we live off of the rest of our days. It is a constant filling, asking to be filled, and receiving the filling by faith.”
Testimony: My wife, Connie, and I took the youth group of our church to a place in Texas for a youth rally. The anointing of the Holy Spirit had made a definite impact on the lives of the kids, and on ours as well. They were experiencing things that were coming out of the darkness and entering into a place filled with a marvelous light right before their very eyes. The kids where giving tracks to people in a parking lot of an X-rated movie theater. The people were weeping and giving their lives to Jesus Christ. The kids even prayed by laying their hands on some to receive a healing in the body. It was such a wonderful demonstration of God’s love for humanity.
Father, I pray that we will see how important it is for us to be filled with Your Holy Spirit so we can walk everyday in the light of Your Word. Thank You that You have made us to be children of the light. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
