Walking In The Light

Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. Psalms 119:105
As I was reading my daily devotional the other morning, I started to wonder what exactly this verse meant to me. This is what I found and wanted to share with you.
The religion of Jesus Christ means something more than talk. The righteousness of Christ consists in right actions and good works from pure, unselfish motives. Outside righteousness, while the inward adorning is wanting, will be of no avail. “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that 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 the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:5-7). If we have not the light and love of God, we are not His children. If we gather not with Christ, we scatter abroad. We all have an influence, and that influence is telling upon the destiny of others, for their present and future good, or for their eternal loss. “This Day with God” by Ellen White, To Love Is to Serve, June 22
O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the Lord. Isaiah 2:5
The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:22-23
The prophet Isaiah continues to speak about seeking Mediums and Wizards. Isaiah tells us there is no light in these as they are evil and do Satan’s work. If there’s no light in them, then they are not from God.
To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.
“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. Matthew 5:13-16
Bottom line, study God’s Word daily and choose to follow Jesus. Pastor Lee Venden tells it “It’s All About Jesus.”
I Am The Light Of The World, by Vance K Jackson
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12 KJV
Walk not in darkness. Walk in the Light of Christ. When you choose to follow Christ, He will shine His Light on every area of your life. When you follow after the Principles and Precepts of Christ, you will get His Results. Choose to humble yourself and submit to His Word daily.
Choose to continually surrender your heart to Him daily. Choose to lay your will down before Him and let Christ lead and transform your life and your heart.
Thank you Jesus, Amen ?
