“Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them.” Ephesians 5:11 NLT
“For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night.” 1 Thessalonians 5:5 NLT
The darkness encroaches
from every direction,
Trying to block out the Son;
But those who truly
belong to the Lord,
Will see that His work be done.
They’ll expose the corruption
and the lies,
And to the truth hold fast;
Never once wavering
in their faith,
Until they reach heaven at last.
Whether it is the upcoming celebration of Halloween (which many deem harmless fun), the current direction that the world is headed, or apostasy within the church, we must constantly strive to test everything against the Word of God, and the voice of the Holy Spirit within us. Never once should we be tempted to take part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness, but instead we are to take a stand against them, exposing them with the light of Christ; and call others out of the darkness to join us, just as God has called us out of the darkness into His wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)
