Not in the Shadows

“…God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7

God is LIGHT ~ Sister, are you walking in the shadow of compromise? I once walked in the shadows, by compromising on God’s standard of modesty. Considering my busy schedule, I attempted to justify my second-hand purchases as a bargain, not realizing I was trading my soul for a “piece of pottage”. God, in his wisdom, brought a Titus 2 Sister who challenged me with purchasing garments left-over from “Egypt”. I now had a choice – choose the LIGHT or continue in the shadows. I wrestled with God, finally making the choice to come back to the LIGHT. It was not easy, but the renewed fellowship with God brought more blessing than the thrift store bargains.

Cast off the works of darkness and run to the light – the LIGHT of LIFE. With God there is no darkness, no shadow of compromise.
