Ephesians 5:8 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Ephesians 5:8

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. 

 

I have all kinds of papers floating around in my room from prison, but the other day, one caught my eye. To get out of your cell and go most any place you need to have a pass, similar to a hall pass in school. I found one the other day that was for one of my first times going to church in there, and it has just been speaking to me. Nothing groundbreaking happened or any great enlightenment, but it reminded me how God can take something that seems insignificant and make it the start of something great! I may not have had a major breakthrough there, but the seeds were definitely planted!!

 


It also reminded me where I came from and how lost I was before Jesus saved me!! Pride is something that I struggle with, and it’s easy for me to go from one prodigal son to the other!! As followers of Jesus, I think it’s important that we don’t live in the past but own it and remember just how much He saved us from!!

 

Remember, Jesus went from riches to rags so that we could go from rags to riches, and He did it with love in His heart!! I encourage you to spend some time thanking God for when He rescued you!! I know I need to!!!

 

I love you all, God bless, and glory to God first and always!!!!
