Christ Shall Give You Light

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light– Ephesians 5:14. When we became saved, we are spiritually awakened to a new life with Christ: this is the meaning of arise from the dead. In Matthew 5:16 Jesus said: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  Jesus did not say to pray for more light, or to struggle through life trying to keep it burning. Rather he said let and the reason for this is that we already have light and we are encouraged to allow this light to shine by enjoying the good works which show us that we have the light of life– John 8:12.” ~LMJ~
