Turning your life around and going in the direction of The Lord is not easy. You have to give up your sinful nature and live under Gods rules, “The Ten Commandments”.
There is no perfect person so you may not break the major commandments but you will break one of them on a continuous basis.
Jesus talks about renewing our mind everyday to bring us closer to him and cleanse our souls. To be the children of the light you must put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:22) You can read about how I became a child of the light in my book “Closer to The One”.
We must not lie to one another but be truthful in your words and actions. Do not let your anger control your actions. It is best to make peace with those who have hurt you so that evil does not take hold of your heart and harden it. Wickedness grows in harden hearts. The devil loves to use people whom have been hurt to hurt others. (Ephesians 4:25-28)
Do not speak badly of others. We must use our words to be helpful in building others up according to their needs and this takes listening to others hearts. We must get rid of all bitterness, rage, and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another and forgive each other just as Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:29-32)
To be children of the light you only need to surrender yourself to The Lord Jesus Christ and commit to living in his truth and not your old ways. This will take time and practice, so do not be afraid. We are all a walking talking beautiful mess that God adores.
