Walk This Way - In the Light

Chris Williams
This week Pastor Matt continued the series Walk This Way with walking In Light.
Ephesians 5:8,  "for you, were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light."
I don’t know if any of you were like me for most of my spiritual life, I really never felt like a child of light. I allowed circumstances and feelings to dictate what I believed about God and what God thought about me because of things I did or didn’t do.
However, feelings and works don’t trump FACTS. Colossians 1:12-14, "giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
There’s the fact of the matter, it’s Christ who qualifies us to share in the inheritance of the Saints in light. It has never been and never will be about anything we can or can’t do. Christ did it all!
It’s just that simple but we like to complicate it. Most of the time because we’ve been taught we have to do things, when the truth is we need to learn to rest in the truth.

"It has never been and never will be about anything we can or can’t do. Christ did it all!"

The only way to know the truth is through the study of the scripture. Don't take someone else’s word for what the Bible says, search the scripture for yourself. I encourage you, if you aren’t already, read and study the scripture for yourself and trust the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, and reveal the truths of the Bible to you. Then you will be able to do more than rest, you’ll be able to stand firm in what you believe and walk it out as a child of Light.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.”‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-8‬
