Luminaries

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” Eph 5:8 (NIV)

Salvation is an event followed by a process. At the moment of your salvation, you are delivered from the kingdom of darkness and placed in the kingdom of light. You instantly become light in the Lord. Instantaneously, you become a child of light. Your new identity in Christ demands a new productivity for Christ.

  • “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt 5:14 (NIV)
  • “Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.” Luke 11:36 (NIV)
  • “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe…” Phil 2:14-15 (NIV)

Live as a child of the light. In Christ, you are the light of world. Your whole body is full of light. Shine like stars in the universe. You have become a luminary for the Lord! Your assignment is to shine brightly in this dark world that God strategically placed you in. Regardless of your home environment, school environment, work environment, or recreation environment, God has launched you into those environments to be His luminary.

Are you living as a child of light? Is it evident to those in your sphere of influence that you are a luminary for the Lord?

Pursuing God,
