VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3, 2019

EPHESIANS 5:13

But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.

 

PAUL IS GIVING A LESSON ON LIGHT VERSUS DARKNESS.

HE IS TEACHING HIS DISCIPLES THAT THEY ARE TO BE THE LIGHT IN A DARK WORLD AROUND THEM, EXPOSING THE EVIL DEEDS OF DARKNESS, BUT CERTAINLY NOT PARTICIPATING IN IT.

HE STATES THAT EVERYTHING IN DARKNESS WILL ULTIMATELY BE EXPOSED BY THE LIGHT, WHICH IS GOODNESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND TRUTH.

THERE IS NO PLACE FOR DARKNESS, FOR EVIL, FOR SIN, IN THE LIFE OF A BELIEVER, AND WE ALL NEED TO BE MINDFUL OF THIS, FOR WE ARE TO BE THE ONES WHO BRING TRUTH, LIGHT, INTO THE WORLD’S DARKNESS. WE NEED GOD’S WISDOM TO GRANT US DISCERNMENT IN ALL SITUATIONS SO WE CAN ALWAYS BE READY TO EXPOSE WHAT IS UNACCEPTABLE IN GOD’S EYES. IT IS GOD’S LIGHT THAT EXPOSES EVIL.
