Be encouraged because you are a child of God. Live each day knowing He is with you always and knowing the future with God will be beyond what you could imagine.
Reading in Ephesians 5:1-20, the admonition of verse one can be taken seriously because all who accept Christ as Savior, are a child of God. The basis of our inspiration is that the Son of God shines on us, we reflect the light and provide brightness into the lives of others.
Be the light in how you live. I remember one time when a bird got into the sanctuary at our church. The bird couldn’t get out but someone finally thought of turning out the lights and opening up a side door. The bird saw the light and escaped to freedom. It’s the same for us so open the door to the light. Then those trapped inside can see the light and escape to freedom.
This day with You God, we are thankful that we are strengthened in faith as Your child. Help us to be who You made us to be so we provide the spark that shines in dark places. May the love for us through Your Son Jesus shine on us and may we illuminate this light so it provides brightness for others! Amen.
