Transformed by Light
Ephesians 5:13

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.” Ephesians 5:13 NASB

When the light of Christ and His Word shines on the darkness, it exposes and reveals the unfruitful and disgraceful wickedness of evil. Making these dark things visible leads to a transformation, a changing of the person from walking in darkness to visibly walking in the light of Christ. Conviction of how dark and sinful they are in comparison to the light of Christ leads a person to repent and yearn to be a child of the Light by faith in Christ.

Lord Jesus, may I reflect Your light, shining forth Your love and grace in my daily life by walking in obedient righteousness and holiness. May others see Your light and experience life-changing, transforming faith.
