How do we walk in the light? I decided to look up the Greek word for light. It is PHOS. In considering this passage, the following ideas were interesting to me:
a) God is light because light has the extremely delicate, subtle, pure, brilliant quality
b) of truth and its knowledge, together with the spiritual purity associated with it
c) that which is exposed to the view of all, openly, publicly
d) reason, mind
1) the power of understanding esp. moral and spiritual truth
—- Strong’s Lexicon
Will I determine to walk with God in truth?
Will I determine to walk with God in spiritual purity?
Will I determine to walk with God openly and publicly?
These are thoughts worth considering. I first typed, "Will I strive…" for each question. The scripture, "Cease striving and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10a) came to my mind. I had to replace each "strive" with "determine."
I am reminded that it is God’s power that enables us to walk in His light, as we make the decision to do so.
