How do you see yourself as a result of the gospel changing your life from darkness to light? Is it just the fact that you are saved from Hell and eternal judgment?
What if we saw our salvation through the eyes of God our Savior? What if we realized that God had a purpose far greater than just a rescue operation? What if we saw a plan in our new birth and new life in Christ that brought God glory for the rest of our lives and on into eternity?
We referred to this verse yesterday, but look at it again; “God…said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (4:6). Notice the plan and purpose right now in God shining His light into our hearts. He wants to use us “to give the light” to the whole world. So great and wonderful is this light because it is “the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
What if you and I laid aside everything that hindered that light from shining brightly the knowledge of God to others? What would change in your life, your marriage and family, your ministry, church and work? Would souls chained by sin seek freedom in the light you have?
