Lent: Day 13
Once in Darkness
We were once in darkness, living in the shadows But You came to us, our shining light When the night was endless and the world was waiting You came for us, our shining light
Leaving the grave behind, He rose in glorious light His name is Jesus, He is the Savior Leading us into life, we shine in glorious light We worship Jesus, The risen Savior
To the lost and hurting, to a people searching We will tell the world, You’re the shining light There is hope and freedom, to be found in You We will show the world, You’re the shining light
We’re giving glory to the One, We’re giving glory to the One We’re giving glory to the One who saves
Ephesians 5:8 You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, so live your life as children of light. Light produces fruit that consists of every sort of goodness, justice, and truth.
From darkness to light. That is our story. We moved from a dominion of darkness and evil into the glorious Kingdom of God. But it isn’t a story of location, but of transformation. We have not simply moved from a bad place to a good place, instead we have been changed. We were darkness and now we are light; producing the fruit of “goodness, justice and truth”.
JESUS produce in me the fruit of Your light, that I may shine as brightly you, pushing back the darkness!
