Ephesians 5:8 -- On Being Children of Light

"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:"
Ephesians 5:8

When we look at our lives sometimes we see darkness.  We think about poor choices that we have made and hurtful things that we have done, and even though we've changed or are trying to change, we can't erase the past.  It is still there, reminding us of our failures and the darkness that we have been.  But God reminds us here that with him and our commitment to him, we are light, and we don't have to let our past "sometimes darkness" define us.  Just as the sun drives away shadow, God drives away the darkness from us, and we have the opportunity to be light, and goodness, righteousness, and truth as spoken of in the next verse.
Today, let's not let our sometimes darkness haunt us.  Let's leave all of the shadows in the past and let the eternal light of God shine through us.  Let's walk as the children of light... the children of God.
