“Harmony of Lights” (Eph 5:3-14)
We are placed in each place as children of light. When we thank God, and praise God, others will see “light” there.
Our life will make harmony with “goodness, righteousness and truth.” And through us “goodness, righteousness and truth” will echo in the darkness.
Some of you may feel, “I’m not that good. I’m broken. I’m so weak. How can I shine?” It’s okay, friend. Jesus is the light, and he is in us. The light will shine through the cracks of the jar of clay (2 Cor 4:7).
When we are connected with the Lord, turn our hearts to the Lord and live with Him, the Lord who is light will shine through us. Let us live as children of light.
For Lifenet groups and personal reflection:
1) Four areas where we should avoid are mentioned (vv.3-4). Which one do you need to be especially careful about?
2) There are three areas where we need to be aware of as children of the light (vv.10-14). Which one is most challenging for you? How will you overcome? What help do you need, and where will you receive the help?
3) Imagine a picture: your life is making harmony with “goodness, righteousness and truth.” And “goodness, righteousness and truth” are echoing in the darkness. What does God speak to you? What is your response?
4) You may think of one thing you can give thanks to God every morning this week. Remember it when you face challenge, difficulty, or what makes you stressed in the day, and praise the Lord intentionally. Before you go to bed, take a little time to reflect on your day, and give thanks to the Lord.
