Armor of Light

The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Romans 13:12

We often hear about putting on the “Armor of God” to defend against Satan but how about the “Armor of Light”? Paul says to “Lay aside the deeds of darkness” what is he talking about? He’s talking about Sin. When we come to Christ and become Christians we cant keep on sinning like our old self, this is not a true conversion

Many Churches today want to preach about Grace but don’t want to address Repentance. You are not truly a Christian unless you Repent, meaning turn away from your sin, put on the “Armor of Light” meaning to live more like Jesus Christ

Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. Romans 13:13

Paul continues to explain what hes talking about, if your truly a Christian you cant behave like a sinner! Some might say “well its to hard not to sin” Yes truly becoming a Christian is very difficult, that’s why God sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. We must avoid any temptation that leads us to sin, that’s why we become set apart from the world

But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. Romans 13:14

Be more like Christ and “Make No Provision For The Flesh” meaning don’t make any excuses for your sins. We need to cut out all sin in our lives, we know its not going to be easy but that’s why we need the “Armor of Light” in Jesus Christ

Think of it as being on a diet, when your eating healthy you know there are foods and drinks that you should avoid and not consume, this is the same with sin. There are temptations we know we should avoid and stay away from. Ask for the Holy Spirit to guide you in Jesus Name Amen
