WORD FOR TODAY. CJM “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” 1 Peter 2:9-10


We are no longer sinners, but are now sons and daughters. We no longer live in darkness, but we have been called into the glorious light and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
In Revelation 12:10, John describes the devil as ‘the accuser of the brethren’. He is the father of lies and he will do everything he can do to try and convince us that we still live in darkness (John 8:44). While we still live in a fallen world filled with darkness, we ourselves are children of the light. We are a new creation now. The old has passed away and all things are new! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
“… For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.” Ephesians 5:8 (ESV)
