Bros, yes after the destruction of our flesh through repentance, forgiveness of sins and receiving Christ as our Lord and Savior, filling with the Holy Spirit, we are New Creations in Christ, old things past away, all things become new. We are brought from darkness to His glorious Light of eternal Salvation and a life more abundantly in Him. The Light of Christ enters into our hearts and lives at every level and reflects His light in every area of our life and walk. We are lights for Christ and the Light of Christ will shine in you and through you as you receive Christ, obey Him and walk in Him.
We were chosen before the beginning of time and before we were in our mother’s womb, God chose you for His purpose and plan.
The Bible says in 1Peter 2:9 But you [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light…;
Bros we are called into His light and to be His light that shines forth brightly because of Him Jesus Christ being in us. Every facet of our being exudes Him and His light shines in us and from us. If He weren’t in us we would not be able to shine from His light for all to see and recognize there is something greater at work in us and through us- it is the Resurrected Christ indwelling us with His Holy Spirit, using us as a lighthouse because we are His temple and a reflection of His light.
He dwells in us for all to see and that He might draw unto Himself those that see His Light in us and come to know Him through our witness of Him living in and through us. They would notice there is something different about us… Because we have been with Him and are in Him and He is in our hearts the Lord Christ Jesus, we have life more abundantly, our flesh has been mortified, and we have a New Life in Christ Jesus as we walk in the gift of the Holy Spirit-amen!
