Jesus, Armor of Light

The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.
Isaiah 9:2 NASB

O let us give thanks to You Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. You rescued us from the domain of darkness, in which we formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience and transferred us to the kingdom of Your beloved Son, Jesus! God You know we were formerly darkness, but now we are Light in the Lord Jesus. Guide our feet to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death. Use us to walk as children of Light so as to open the eyes of those walking in darkness that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Christ.’ God, cause the Light of Jesus to shine through us into the darkness so they will see the great Light and find peace. Use us for Your glory, Lord God, in whose name I pray, amen.
Colossians 1:12‭-‬13/Ephesians 2:2/Ephesians 5:8/Luke 1:79/Acts 26:18 NASB


🌹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 NASB

1 John 5:18-19

We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
1 John 5:18‭-‬19 NASB

Jesus, born of God, without sin, pure and holy; praise be unto Your name. You gave Yourself for my sin and rescued me from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father. I pray Lord God to live a pure and undefiled religion in Your sight by keeping myself unstained by the world and in Your love, O God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of my Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. Father, thank You for Your perfect plan – Jesus, the seed who abides in me and keeps me from the evil one who cannot touch me. The whole world lies in the power of the evil one but we are kept in Jesus, protected from the evil one. Hallelujah to my Almighty God in whom I trust, amen.
Galatians 1:4/James 1:27/Jude 1:21 NASB

🌹No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

1 John 5:16-17

If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.
1 John 5:16‭-‬17 NASB

Lord God, I offer up a prayer by faith for my brother/sister who is caught up in a sin. I pray You will restore him/her and forgive him/her. Lord, I know intercession on behalf of those who once were enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, blaspheming the Lord, You will not hear my prayer on their behalf. In the case of those who have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. God, I pray for Your extravagant love to be poured out on my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and keep us from falling away into blasphemous sin. Father, God I pray I will not neglect to pray for Your saints. Thank You Father for the offer of salvation through Your Son. Thank You, Jesus for Your sacrificial obedience on the cross and thanks be to the Holy Spirit who convicts and leads to salvation, forgiveness, and guidance to walk into eternity by faith through grace. To You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit be honor and glory forever, amen.

1 John 3:7-8

Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.
1 John 3:7‭-‬8 NASB

🌹Hallelujah to the Son of God who was tempted by the deceiver, conquered sin, and brought righteousness to those who put their faith in You.
Jesus, You came to destroy the works of the devil. May I not be deceived, having discernment to recognize the one who practices righteousness vs the one who practices sin. Judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out!! The ruler of this world has been judged!!
Jesus, You are the victory!! I know that You are righteous Jesus and I will practice righteousness because I am born of You.
Jesus, thank You for sowing good seed in me.
God I pray You bestow upon me the courage, boldness and perseverance to sow the good seed — Jesus, the Son of Man — in the world, as Your kingdom daughter. Glory, honor and victory to Jesus, my Savior. Amen.

1 John 3:4-6

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.
1 John 3:4‭-‬6 NASB

🌹Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Jesus, You are the propitiation for my sin but not mine alone but for those of the whole world. I have been redeemed with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of my Savior Jesus Christ. Thank You, God, for Your law because through it I was made aware of my sin. Sin is lawlessness that brings about wrath. I thank You God for sending Jesus, who knew no sin to be sin on my behalf, that I could become Your righteousness in Jesus. How can I possibly thank You enough for this precious gift bestowed upon me except to practice righteousness in Jesus through Whom I am born again?! I will abide in You and not sin because I am covered in the blood, knowing You and keeping Your commandments and will do good for Your name sake. All praise, honor, and glory to Your name,  in whom I pray.  Amen.

1 John 2:2

and He Himself (Jesus) is the propitiation (or satisfaction) for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
1 John 2:2 NASB

🌹God, You are a God of love and reconciliation. You displayed publicly before the eyes of the world, Jesus, as a life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation by His blood and all can receive this salvation through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness which demands punishment for sin. Therefore, Jesus had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. Thank You, God, for making a way, under the new covenant, so the perfection and sacrifice of Christ will cover (atone for) the imperfection and sin of those who identified with Him and accepted Him as Savior. Make my life worthy of the sacrifice You made on my behalf, Lord God, I pray. In Jesus name, amen.

1 John 2:1

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
1 John 2:1 NASB

God of the written word, Father of my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Honor and praise to You who sits upon the throne! You sent Jesus, the righteous, who is able to save forever all who draw near to You, God, through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for us.
There is but one God, and one mediator also between You O God and men, the man Christ Jesus, Your Son.
I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate me from Your love, God, which is in Christ Jesus my Lord.
The things that are written in Your holy Word are so my joy may be made complete. May I labor with Your children, thankful to be one, until Christ is formed in me.
Christ was risen and sits next to You most holy God, not entering a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in Your presence God on behalf of me. How can I not strive to be sinless and pleasing in Your sight, O God. Thank You, Jesus, for interceding on my behalf when I stumble and sin and not leaving me there but bringing me back to joy complete. To God be the glory for my Advocate, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer:
Jesus, Savior, Redeemer! Praise and glory to Your name!! You who purifies the souls of people for Your own possession, purify me for Your glory so as to be zealous for good deeds.
I acknowledge my sin to You, And my iniquity I do not hide. I will confess my transgressions to You, my Lord for You forgive the guilt of my sin. I will not conceal my transgressions for I want to prosper for Your kingdom purpose. Shower Your compassion upon me as I confess and forsake my sinful ways.
God, You are so faithful and righteous to forgive my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Thank You Lord for Your compassion, forgiveness, and clothing me in Your righteousness! For this I am truly grateful. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

1 John 2:8,10

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:8‭, ‬10 NASB

Holy, righteous, irreproachable, just God. You are worthy of reverent praise for You are sinless, matchless and a faithful God!
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart, I am pure from my sin”? Certainly not I Lord. Forgive me for every time I think that I am able or the “one” who is without sin, self-righteous in my own eyes and yet deceiving myself. For it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one”. Cover me in the righteousness of my Savior who died for me so that I may walk in righteousness for His name sake. I have received His testimony and set my seal to this, that God is true. Your word is in me and I confess Your righteousness as the truth for all mankind. You are not a liar. Your word is truth! Hallelujah!! Amen.

Liberties

Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one.
1 Corinthians 8:4‭ NASB

So for the one who knows there is no such thing as idols or gods, that they have no real existence, it is not a big deal to eat the food sacrificed to idols. But what about the brother or sister who has not yet come to terms with eating food sacrificed to idols or hasn’t surrendered their heart completely to the one true God?

It is good not to eat meat or to drink wine, or to do anything by which your brother stumbles.
Romans 14:21 NASB

But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. For through your knowledge he who is weak is ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died. And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ. Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble.
1 Corinthians 8:9‭, ‬11‭-‬13 NASB

We have a lot more liberality in our times now but what liberties are we comfortable with in our walk with God that may cause a brother or sister to stumble?

God of mercy and grace, forgive me for my insensitivity to the weaknesses and struggles of my brothers and sisters, that I could be contributing to their sin, by misuse of my knowledge from You. Make me aware and conscientiously seek to build them up in the knowledge of You so they may know the freedom found in You, Lord God. To Your glory and praise I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
