'qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light'
I have always loved pictures of the sunrise! This one I took on a lake in Georgia. We were out fishing early and it was so calm and peaceful; it was breathtaking, really. I think one of the reasons I love light so much is that I hate darkness. Even as an adult I have to admit - I am afraid of the dark!
And so, I really love to think about the fact that Christ is the true Light;
that God commanded the light to shine out of darkness;
that His light has shone in our hearts;
that we are commanded to walk as children of light!
I Peter 2:9 is a favorite verse of mine, especially Steve Green Hide 'em in Your Heart style =)
"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light"
So, how about you? Have you come to the cross; are you qualified to run the race; will you claim your inheritance? If so - take the opportunity today to give thanks to the Father who qualified YOU and proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light!!!
