BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS Darkness to Light

Darkness to Light

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

“For you were once full of darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. So live as people of light.”

—Ephesians 5:8

I think there are a lot of people running around today who think they are Christians, but really are not. They may believe in the right things, but they don’t act on those beliefs. Sometimes what appears to be a conversion to Christianity is nothing more than some visible changes in a person’s life.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


For instance, you can pray and not be a Christian. Just because someone prays doesn’t mean they are a believer. Polls show that nine out of ten Americans pray.

You can keep the Ten Commandments to the best of your ability and not necessarily be a Christian.

You can believe you are going to heaven, or believe that Christ is coming back again, and not necessarily be a Christian.

Belief is not the whole picture. The Bible says that even the demons believe and tremble (James 2:19). It is not enough to simply have your eyes opened. According to Acts 26:18, you have to turn from darkness to light. God can make you aware of your need for Christ, but only you can put your faith in Christ.

What does it mean to turn from darkness to light? Paul answers that question in Romans 13. “The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living” (Romans 13:12).

There are a lot of people who are trying to live in two worlds. They know what is true. They effectively believe it is true. But they have not turned from darkness to light.

  1. I’m not sure I can agree with this one Greg. Or I’m reading it wrong for the 4th time. 🙂 “If you confess with your mouth…” Ro, 10:9 Our deeds do not negate our confession or what Christ did on the cross. Yes, we are to live and be like Christ but if I don’t do that I don’t think He will kick me away from the Pearly gates. So are you saying there are many that have not confessed, asked the Lord to be their Savior, but think they are going to heaven because “I’m a good guy?”

    • I think there is a two-fold argument here (Greg Laurie wrote this not me).

      Yes there are many who think that because they do good deeds they will go to heaven. Some even know who Christ is – yet they trust in themselves and not Christ. The Catholics are a prime example of this.

      Then there are those who profess to know God, but there are no changes in their life. These live the same way as before they professed to know Christ, the fruit of the Gospel is non existent – therefore not saved. This does not apply to those who believe but do not do much in the Kingdom of God.

      That’s my thoughts, Make sense?

  2. I guess I just can’t figure out how someone can ask Christ into their life and not be changed even if just a little. Still, I don’t think they are not saved because they don’t make dramatic changes. “Faith of a mustard seed” etc. It just sounds more like “I’m a good guy so I’ll go to heaven.” Oh well, it’s something to ponder. 🙂
