For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light…
As a child of God who are now light in the Lord we are to walk in the light as He is in the light. In 1 John 2:10 we are told that if we love our brother we abide in the light and there is no cause for stumbling in us. If you have ever walked into a dark room in which there were obstacles all around and you were trying to find a light switch you probably stumbled as you moved about looking for that switch. So it is for us as believers when we do not walk in love.
Before being born again we did not have the love of God within us. We were filled with darkness, but once we receive Christ, God’s love (His light) now resides in us. We have become the light of the world. The wise men were led to Jesus by a shinning star which brought them to the Savior. When we walk in love we are that shinning star leading people to Jesus. His love is an action not a feeling.
We walk in love by choosing to treat others the way we would want to be treated. When we walk in love our faith is working for us because faith works through love and this will keeps us from stumbling. So choose to walk in the light you have been given by choosing to act upon love, His light that He has placed in you, and you can lead others out of darkness to God who is love.
