Truth! Isn't it one of the most beautiful things ever?! To be set free by truth is priceless! To have the weight of the world lifted from your shoulders is worth it's weight in gold! How do I put this into words? Hmmm.... Let me think... Let me ask God to put this into words for me... Walking into a pitch black, extremely quiet house that is located in the middle of no where (that is where I live) can be a scary thing! The woods behind my house get a little creepy when it is dark! I scurry for my keys, grab the baby, unlock the door, close the door, and lock it! Then.... I turn the light on! PHEW! I feel better to be locked in my house with all the lights on (my husband does not love me leaving the lights on, but hey its for my sanity)!
That is truth! It is a light that will shine in the darkness. Light gives us security, because we can see! We like to be able to see, right?! When we are in the dark we stumble, run into chairs, tables, and whatever is in the way. Is that just me or do you stumble over things when it is pitch black? Then, the light comes on and the things in the darkness are exposed! I see the chair, table, and toys, therefore I can walk around them.
Through Christ we are in the light! The darkness has no hold on us! We have the right to:
~Walk in a manner worthy of the calling!
~Walk with humility, gentleness, patience, showing forbearance to one another in love!
~Walk in love!
~We do not walk carelessly tripping over things, but we walk with a purpose, we are useful to the
Lord, we have the fruit of the Spirit!
~We must be careful how we walk! We have Christ in us!
