Darkness and light. These descriptive words are woven throughout scripture. They are more than metaphors; they represent two separate kingdoms that are in opposition to one another. These are the kingdom of the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6) and that of “the rulers over this present darkness” (Ephesians 6:12). Spoiler alert: The Kingdom of God has already won!
We have been set free from the kingdom of darkness. This is what our Savior Jesus Christ has accomplished for us in His life of perfect obedience, His sacrificial death, and His resurrection to life. Believer, you and I now belong to the realm of light.
The Apostle Paul reminds us that not only did we once walk in darkness, but we were also darkness. Now, with Jesus, we not only walk in the light, we are light in the Lord as He has come to live within us. How we live life today is our free choice. Let’s live each moment letting His uncovered light radiate in all that we do.
