Word of the Day... May 3, 2013



4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; 1 Thessalonians 5:4-5

The born again Christian does not look at life as a blurred, confused, meaningless mass, but as something planned and with a purpose. Our eyes have been opened to spiritual truth.

In one of Jesus’ sermons he said that one of the reasons He had come to earth was to teach “recovery of sight to the blind” (Luke 4:18).  Our sin nature keeps us spiritually blind, but the Holy Spirit helps us to see our sin and helplessness and shows us God’s redeeming grace through Jesus Christ. He shows us the truth of Jesus’ declaration” I am the light of the world.  He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12). 

In the Bible we are called the “children of light and children of the day” (1Thess.5:5). We are no longer of the dark.  We know where we came from, we know why we are here and we know where we are going.  In the midst of a world living in darkness, We can walk as children of the light!

I hope that all of you have a Simply Heavenly Friday!!!  May the Lord bless you in all that you do!
