Walking In The Light Of The Lord

Psalm 119105 WM

One of Christ’s greatest gifts He has given us is His Holy Word.

Not only this, but He also bestows on His beloved children an igniting passion; a burning desire to not only glorify the Lord in their lives in ‘walking in the light of His Word’, but to also share with others the ‘Light’ of Jehovah Himself to those who are lost and in need of Christ’s saving grace.

“Ye are the light of the world.  A city that is on a hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

~Matthew 5:14-16~

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin… If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

~1 John 1:5-7, 9~

Have you ever stopped to think what an undeserved, and overwhelming blessing this is!?

It continually astounds me that our Heavenly Father uses us sinful, wretched sinners for His glory, and blesses us with undeserved grace, forgiving us of our sins and cleansing us with the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus: His perfect sacrifice, making us clean; a new creation in Christ!

….By Whose stripes, ye were healed!!! (1 Peter 2:24)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

~2 Corinthians 5:17~

What He reveals to us in His Word are such glorious truths!  It teaches us how we might serve our Great King to the fullest of our capability, taking every thought captive with this vapor of a life He has given us, and that through gleaning these things from His Word, our lives will reflect this very same light we find in our Lord and Savior to those around us, everywhere we go!

May we rejoice today, knowing by His sovereign grace we have been given the blessing of shining this wonderful light in the darkness to those who cross our path every day.

Never waste a moment to share this awesome, wonderful gift to bless those around you today.

“The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin;
The Light of the world is Jesus;
Like sunshine at noonday his glory shone in,
The Light of the world is Jesus.

Come to the Light, ’tis shining for thee;
Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
Once I was blind, but now I can see;
The Light of the world is Jesus.

No darkness have we who in Jesus abide,
The Light of the world is Jesus;
We walk in the Light when we follow our Guide,
The Light of the world is Jesus.

Ye dwellers in darkness with sin-blinded eyes,
The Light of the world is Jesus;
Go, wash at his bidding, and light will arise,
The Light of the world is Jesus.

No need of the sunlight in heaven, we’re told,
The Light of the world is Jesus;
The Lamb is the Light in the City of Gold,
The Light of the world is Jesus.”
