The Daily Breath of God

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth).
Ephesians 5:8, 9 NIV
The power of God’s grace that is found in Jesus the Christ is clearly told here. For you were once darkness, but now you are light. This is not an improvement or adaption, it is a new creation. Here we are taken back to the origin of everything; a creation is bringing something out of nothing. The beauty, the love and the power of grace is that it took darkness and turned it into light. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consist in all goodness, righteousness and truth). That means the freedom of grace affects the seat of our personality, our heart, our understanding and our affections. This changes everything in how we view ourselves, our circumstances and our relationships. Now grace can reveal itself through our speech and our actions. On this new day may you enjoy remembering who you are because of the grace of God. May the old habits of darkness have no place to express themselves because grace has renewed your words, your actions and even your moods. This is a good day to give thanks to the Lord right where you find yourself. Enjoy!
