Read Ephesians 5:8-14
8You yourselves used to be in the darkness, but since you have become the Lord’s people, you are in the light. So you must live like people who belong to the light, 9for it is the lighth that brings a rich harvest of every kind of goodness, righteousness, and truth. 10Try to learn what pleases the Lord. 11Have nothing to do with the worthless things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light. 12(It is really too shameful even to talk about the things they do in secret.) 13And when all things are brought out to the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed; 14for anything that is clearly revealed becomes light.i That is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper,
and rise from death,
and Christ will shine on you.”
Paul reminds his readers to live in the light, and not in darkness. He reminds us - when we bring our darkness into the light - God shines upon us and turns that darkness into light.
Lord I bring you those things that I don't like to share with others. Shine your light even into the darkest places, transform me.
