ARE YOU LIVING IN THE LIGHT?
TEXT: 1 JOHN 2:7-11
MEMORY VERSE: “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now” (1 JOHN 2:9).
The world is having its trial by fire. The pandemic, insecurity and disruption of previously held beliefs, have plunged the nations into deeper darkness and gloom. These are the days of fake news, hate speech and conspiracy theories. Iniquities abound in the society, and the wicked are held in high esteem. Men are lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Never had the need and urgency of illumination been greater than now.
Jesus proclaimed himself as the light of the world. He further declared that His disciples were the light of the world. Christian youths are the light of the world. Stars shine brightest in the dark night. Nothing exposes a white spot better than a dark background. Similarly, Christians should love and not hate the brethren. Hatred is darkness or sin. Rather, they are to “walk as children of light.” Having had their nature and character transformed by the Lord, they are to “cast off the works of darkness, and…put on the armour of light” (Romans 13:12b). Are you living in the light?
QUOTE: Christian youths are the light of the world.
CHALLENGE: There is urgent need for illumination now.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to live in the light.
