Topic: Armour Of Light [DCLM Daily Manna 6 November 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Romans 13:8-14
Key Verse: “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” – (Roman 13:12).
Sun Tzu – a Chinese war strategist (545-470BC) remarked on what measures to adopt in fighting a hundred wars in life without losing any in his popular maxim which says “know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster”.
There is a resounding truth in the view expressed by this warlord. For the Christian believer who is actively engaged in the battle of life, he should understand himself and his relationship with Christ. He should also know the enemy and his antics so as to properly control and neutralise every offensive intended to be launched by him.
The passage reminds us of the need to “awake out of sleep”. Of course, giants are as weak as dead dogs when they are asleep. Spiritual and physical alertness are required if we are to continue to win in the battle of life. Spiritual encumbrances referred to as works of darkness, when allowed by the believer, open doors for terrible defeats.
We must ensure that such avenues of defeat are permanently closed. “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light”. We must allow Christ to be our guide as we follow His footsteps. Walking in the light and being clothed with the armour of light is only possible through a closer and intimate walk with Christ. This level of spiritual attainment and fellowship is only possible for genuinely saved souls. Therefore, to be a partaker of this, as a sinner, let Jesus come into your heart and remain undisturbed!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Christ in you is your hope of glory.
