"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, live as children of light." NIV
"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light." KJV
Before we accepted Jesus Christ as our Saviour, we lived in darkness. We didn't realize it because it appeared we were doing basically what the rest of the world was doing and it seemed natural. When we accepted Jesus as our Saviour, we immediately realized the difference by the light we received. It was then we committed ourselves to Jesus Christ as our Lord and now live totally in the light.
Heavenly Father, we praise you and thank you for bringing us out of the darkness and into the light. We ask for your continued grace and mercy to help us stay within the light and to keep from drifting back toward the darkness that seems to want us back. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
