Introduction and Definition of Light “But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.” (Ephesians 5:13)
A short clip from the New Year’s Message is available on the Pastor Chris Digital Library and on KingsChat. Take a few minutes to watch the video excerpt.
“The simplest and best definition of light comes from the Bible,” the man of God, Pastor Chris, shared at the New Year’s Eve Service.
Pastor Chris defines light from the Bible with two scriptures:
1. Psalm 119:105 — “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” The Word of God is light!
2. Ephesians 5:13 — “But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.” To make manifest is to make something clear or obvious to the eye or mind. As such, light:
- makes obvious or apparent
- makes clear or plain
MEDITATE AND MEMORIZE
“This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is light, pure light; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.” (1 John 1:5 TLB)
“Jesus answered, neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” (John 9:3-5 KJV)
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.” (Matthew 5:14 KJV)
““Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16 MSG)
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105 KJV)
“But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light.” (Ephesians 5:13 AMPC)
I am born of God. God is light; therefore, I am light. In God, there is no darkness; therefore, in me, there is no darkness.
The Word of God is light, and I am God’s offspring through the Word. God’s Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path; I do not walk in darkness.
I am that which makes manifest. Everywhere I go, I reveal truth, I make divine verities obvious and apparent to the eyes and minds of those I come in contact with. My words enlighten and make the message of salvation clear and plain. I am an effective minister of the Gospel!
I am conscious of my divine heritage and purpose on earth. I redeem the time, working while it is yet day. I make the works of God manifest in the lives of those in my sphere of contact.
As long as I am in that school (or business, or company, or neighborhood), darkness cannot prevail.
No matter how gross the darkness becomes, I am the light of the world. I am set on the hilltop, and I am unashamed to blaze brightly for the Lord Jesus Christ.
