Just as the light is breaking through the clouds, let your light break through conversations of darkness; environments of doubt, and external chaotic stress.
“God is light; in him, there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another.”
1 John 1:5-7 NIV
Yesterday’s Post focused on the Holy Spirit and Truth and developing our Christ-like personality and behavior. Since we are a social people we often find ourselves in the midst of conversations with others. We have all been in conversations that have become toxic, from quiet banter to harsh gossip. It is during these times that others are watching to see if we will partake or let the light shine through us. God is our light and should break through conversational storms, internal dialogue, and private thoughts. If we cover our light, listen to the gossip without attempting to change the atmosphere, or walk away if we cannot change it, we are nothing more than sinners.
“If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.”
1 John 1:6 NIV
God Word shines through Christians. Sometimes we forget everyone watches our every move. This is why we must stay alert and aware of the wiles of the evil one who always looks for the moments when we let our guard down. I know it’s hard to be on point every moment, but we must be vigilant and do our best. It’s always better to look forward than backward in remorse.
The Lord Light Shines Through You.
God’s Promise, if we walk in His light, and it shines through us, we will have fellowship with Him and one another.
