The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 69
Therefore, do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5:7-10
The only way to escape the sorrow of emptiness is to exit the stage of emptiness with all its excuses. It’s no secret that there are many who believe in God, but they don’t believe God and as a result they don’t behave God. He says that there is fruit in faithfulness and life in the light. It’s the exit that exposes real faith and it’s the emptiness that exposes real fear. Exiting emptiness takes faith and fearlessness. We must believe God to behave/obey God. Don’t go along to get along. There’s no hope or help in that. Live a life that challenges those around us to live up, not down. If we don’t live empty, we won’t leave people empty. Believe and behave God, there is light with the Lord Jesus Christ dispels darkness and ends emptiness. He will put purpose in pleasure and pleasure in purpose as we live to please Him.
