Advent Day 13: Children of Light
- Sadly, many still continue to show resistance to the Light because they love/prefer darkness. "This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed." (John 3:19-20) These people may not realize but the time to receive the Light is limited. They cannot afford to wait until later because death comes to all of us and often unexpectedly. Once they die, darkness will indeed overtake them for eternity.
- Like a light shining in a dark place, Jesus points out the way we should walk. If we believe in Him and walk in His light, we become children of light, revealing the truth and pointing people to God. "Live as children of light (for the fruit of light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord." (Ephesians 5:8b-910) By the way, our homeschool's name is Children of Light Christian Academy :).
- As Christ's followers, we are to be Christ's light bearers, reflecting His light to the world. How brightly is our light shining? Can others see Christ in our words, attitudes, actions, and reactions?
