“For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light.” -Ephesians 5:8

It seems like the last week or so has finally made it clear that fall is here. The garden produce is thinning out, there is a chill in the air, the leaves are turning colors and the days are getting shorter. It is probably that last one that I dislike the most. I love the long days of summer, being able to be outside and feeling that warmth on my face, as well as being able to throw the kids out the door and letting them burn some energy. When the days start to shorten it makes me try to soak up every last bit of sun I can get before the real cold weather sets in.

Perhaps my dislike for the long, dark days of winter comes in part because of what Paul reminded the Ephesian church in his letter to them. We all were in the darkness when we were slaves to our sin, but because of our Lord and Savior we are now in the light.

We are forgiven for those dark times and called to live in the light, called to be those who spread that light. That is my challenge for all of us in this season. The days may not be as long and it may seem like we spend more time in the darkness, but hold on to your identity in Christ as a child or light. Let that light shine brightly, let it shine into a dark world that is in need of a little bit of light.

Blessings,

Pastor Devin
