Devotion for Monday, March 8, 2021

“But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.  For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you” (Ephesians 5:13-14).

In Jesus is light and that light is the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it.  Live your life as though the world was watching it.  This is not to feed your ego, as if you had something to boast about, but about learning how to faithful.  It is to both keep you humble and on the narrow path.  Live a life that is pleasing to the Lord at all times knowing that He indeed does know and see all.

Lord, let me neither be afraid, nor indifferent about these things.  Guide me in the way of salvation so that I would hold fast to the truth of Your presence and purpose.  You have come to save as many as believe so that we might have everlasting life.  Lead me in that life Lord so that I would humbly walk with You each and every day.  Guide my footsteps in order that I may be consistent in this gift of faith that You have given me.

Lord Jesus, You know all that is needed.  Before I was born, You provided for my salvation.  You have given me all that I need to walk a life of faith.  Guide me in that walk so that I may be consistent always, living out this faith which You have given me.  Help me to live in season and out of season according to Your Word.  In all things, may I always look to You, my Rock and my Redeemer.  Amen.
