Cast off the works of darkness!

Romans 13:12, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”

From the sermon series: Time of fulfilment

The image of light is used in Scripture several times. In the beginning, we read about God starting His work by separating light from darkness. Later we read of Jesus bringing light by separating truth from the lie. The work of separating the symbolic light from darkness is a challenging task, and we must use every tool God has given us to find victory over darkness.

A first tool God has gifted us with is faith. Faith allows us to resist the idea that we have been abandoned by God. Second is love. Love moves us to seek salvation for our neighbor, and enables us to do so without harm. A third tool is hope, which guards our hearts through affliction, and empowers us to endure for the long haul.

Consider your levels of faith, love, and hope. Which needs the most work? How can you grow in that area?
