Clean Up! #512

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. 13  Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. (Romans 13:12–13, NKJV)

The dawn breaks and beams of sunlight burst upon the land. The night is over; time to rise and shine and meet the challenges of the day. The darkness of night lends itself to the indecencies of sin. But, Christians are “light in the Lord” – children of light who follow Christ, the light of the world (Eph. 5:8; John 8:12). Christians are admonished to get rid of every vestige of sin and clothe ourselves with the armor (or, weapon) of light. As light diffuses darkness, we must reject every indulgence of the flesh. Sin dwells in dark places of the heart and lures unsuspecting Christians to fulfill its lusts. It is time to clean up your heart and walk decently. The light of the Son is shining. Walk in His light. Live by His truth today.
