Walking in the Light 
"O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD."
Isaiah 2:5

This is a profound invitation made to us all to walk in the light of God! As we all know that God is the Source of all light, we are enjoined to live in His light. Light is the opposite of darkness. We can't walk in darkness and claim to walk in the light at the same time. The Bible says,
"If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:" (1 John 1:6)

God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. And as light, God is immaculately and completely pure, devoid of any sin or unrighteousness!

What does it mean to walk in the light? 

It means to share and display God's character and truth. For instance, God is love, we must love like God; God is righteous, we must do righteous things like Him; God is merciful, we must be merciful like Him. God has no darkness in His character at all. No sin in Him. So when we walk in the light, we must hate and jettison every sin and all appearances of sin.

We must seek to become more like Christ in character and conduct. Walking in the Light is about bringing our lives, thoughts, motives and actions under the search light or scrutiny of the Word, and respond accordingly in obedience to its influence and control. Do you love the light?

Then let the light shine into every area of your life, so that sin can be exposed. Seek to find your sin instead of your sin finding you out! The Bible says,
"But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out." Numbers 32:23

Please know that:

1. Jesus Christ is Light

“Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”John 8:12; 12:35

Jesus spoke of Himself as the light of the world. We must act on the truth or information He gives us. If we do not, we will end up in darkness, and if we walk in darkness, we will loose direction, and not know where we are going.

2. The Word is light!

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."Psalms 119:105

"The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple."Psalms 119:130

Basically, we receive light via the Word of the Lord!

3. As Christians, we are light!

"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:" Ephesians 5:8

"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness."
1 Thessalonians 5:5

We are light if we share the character of Christ who is the Light of the world. We are to radiate His light in our own world -- wherever we find ourselves!

I decree and declare that you will be empowered and enabled to walk in the light of Christ always in Jesus mighty name.

Yours sincerely,
Joe Jesimiel Ogbe
