“For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light” (Ephesians 5:8).
We are what we are in real time; in the flesh; here and now. The life of faith isn’t just moving out of darkness and into the light; it is the transformation from darkness incarnate to light incarnate. Do not miss the implication of this truth: Man is not inherently good and in need of a few adjustments; he is inherently evil and in need of conversion. Understanding this makes our mission and message all the more urgent and critical.
