Those who walk in the light are awake and subject to Christ. Those who are in darkness are asleep and unaware of Christ. There is as much difference between a sinner and a child of God as there is night and day.
The reason people drink alcohol and strong drink is because they are in darkness. Those in darkness have no enlightenment to the truth. Enlightenment to Christ causes the heart to glow, radiate, and experience the wonderful assurance we have in the authority and person of Christ. Children of light are sober because they’ve been enlightened to Him.
Children of God glow with assurance and certainty because sin is gone. They have passed from the clutches of death and separation for God. Children of God walk in the Spirit and by doing so they never grieve the Spirit. Why? They are united with God in the Spirit. Darkness caused from sin is expelled by the light of the truth. Children of light can see Christ because they have touched Christ. Children of the light walk in the light and walk in the Spirit because they’ve been cleansed from sin.
“There is as much difference between a sinner and child of God as there is night and day”.
1 Thessalonians 5:4-9… But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
No more darkness. No more night.
Colossians 1:13…Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Glorify God in your body and spirit as children of light and you won’t miss Christ when He comes. Are you ready?
1 Corinthians 6:20…For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
