Paul here in Ephesians encourages us to keep walking. To walk in love, to walk as Children of light. As Christ has shone on us we are no longer darkness but we are light. We make an impact on the world around us by being who we are. “You’re not in the light, you ARE light…”
Ben Davies shared an excellent word about dying to self. He explained that Jesus although he was God submitted himself to the Father’s will and glorified God.

How do we get to a place of delighting in God when there are so many things that can get in the way?

Life is full of questions and Jesus is on the firing line again today as He is questioned about life after death.
