Living the Word of God

Children of the Light

FACT:  Darkness and Light cannot coexist. Light cancels out darkness. Christians are also known as children of light: “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” (Eph 5:8) We were called to be “separated” from the world as “the world” relates to being in darkness, and the “light” doing the will God. But how can you be separate when you can’t control the lusts of your own flesh? The devil is a bully. He attacks your emotions and your five physical senses to keep you from doing the things that please God. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. (1 John 2:16 NLT) One should ask: “What pleases God?” Using your faith (Heb 11:6) to go out into the world (Mark 16:15-18) and do what Jesus did (John 14:12) is my human attempt to describe a force so powerful words can’t contain it. This power was delegated to you as an Ambassador of Christ (2 Cor 5:20) and it’s use can be released by you through your faith in His (your spoken) words. What a mighty plan we were given to defeat the devil. It you don’t believe me, just look at how Jesus handled the devil’s temptation (Luke 4:1-13) He said: “It is written:” Rap on brother. Receive this and be blessed.
