For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10

Every Christian has a past. That past is described in today's reading as "darkness." That was then, this is now. Now we are different. The difference is like night and day, or at least it should be. We should have a desire to walk in the light as a result of our new life in Christ. Find out what pleases the Lord by prayerfully searching the Scriptures, and then walk in that light you discover. Goodness, righteousness and truth are just some of the fruits you will find along your journey.

Father, by bringing us out of darkness into your marvelous light, you have made us to be your children. Help us, Lord, to live our lives in such a way as to please you in all things, as kids who always want to please their Father. When we walk in your light we see things more clearly, we see ourselves more clearly, for your light shines truth on all things. Only in your truth we are truly free. Thank you for bringing us out of darkness. Please bless the path ahead and may we bring your light wherever we go. Amen.
