TOPIC: CHILDREN OF LIGHT
TEXT: EPHESIANS 5:1-10
KEY VERSE: “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (EPHESIANS 5:8).
A preacher once recounted his experience on the way to work. A co-passenger in a cab was reading a magazine filled with pictures of gorgeous naked women in seductive poses. He would comment on each woman’s finer features and ask for his response. He was stunned at his depraved disposition.
The question however is, how should you as a Christian respond to such situations at work when the other workers share the latest dirty jokes. Should you say nothing and just walk away?
These are the difficult, real-life situations that Paul the apostle addressed in the text. He was answering the question of how we, as children of light, should relate to a morally dark world. He does not give us specific directions to follow when we face these difficult situations but he gives us comprehensive guiding principles. By understanding these principles, each of us can think through on how to respond when these situations arise, as surely they will. We are admonished to steer clear of moral vices prevalent among the unregenerate: fornication, all uncleanness, covetousness, filthiness, foolish talking, jesting, “which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks”.
Therefore, all those merely professing Christianity and relationship with Christ but daily live without corresponding evidence of a transformed nature, risk eternal damnation in hell. Some Christians have become so much like the world in their attitude and behaviour that there is no appreciable difference between them in dressing, talking, choice of career, marriage, and so on.
Being children of light implies that we radiate our transformed lives. Just as He created light out of darkness, He has changed us from being darkness itself into light in the Lord and to the world.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The redeemed is a light to the world.
