The theme for the 2016 Family Conferences is “Walking in the Light.” The timeliness and importance of this theme cannot be overstated. God’s Word abounds with teaching on light! In the beginning, God said let there be light. There could not be more contrast between light and dark. Yet in our present culture, there is a real agenda to reject the light and silence those who bring the message of light.
Jesus emphasized the urgency of His mission by stating, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 8:12). As His followers, we are the described as, “the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). The best way to walk in the light is to make God’s Word a lamp to our feet and a light unto our path.
Many families all around the world long for fellowship. True fellowship happens by humbling ourselves and walking in the light. Scripture states “if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (I John 1:7).
The watching world around us sees and recognizes the deep love and fellowship that results from walking in the light and it is by this that they can tell that we are disciples of Jesus and we become the beacon of light to our lost and dying world.
