HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH...DARKNESS

Ephesians 5. 8-12

On the opening page of the Bible, God indicates certain spiritual principles which will be amplified later in His word, by reference to the natural universe. Principal among these is that He divided the light from the darkness. ‘What communion hath light with darkness?’, 2 Cor. 6. 14, is the somewhat rhetorical question posed by the Holy Spirit. ‘God is light, and in him is no darkness at all’, is the message that the apostles heard from the Lord Jesus, 1 John 1. 5. God dwells ‘in the light which no man can approach unto’, 1 Tim. 6. 16. He is unutterably holy in His nature and His dwelling place is holy too. All that is represented by darkness is repugnant to Him.

Conversion brings about a mighty change. When Paul was commissioned to preach the gospel, he was sent to the Gentiles ‘to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God’, Acts 26. 18, and this aspect of conversion seems never to have been far from his thinking. We are delivered ‘from the power of darkness’ and have been translated ‘into the kingdom of his dear Son’, Col. 1. 13, and Paul reminds the believers that they ‘were sometimes darkness’ but now they are ‘light in the Lord’, Eph. 5. 8. The difference that is brought about by salvation cannot be overstated.

As always, what is true positionally for the believer is to be worked out practically in the daily experience. Thus, the apostle urges the Christians to ‘walk as children of light... proving what is acceptable unto the Lord’, Eph. 5. 8,10. Put simply, we cannot be well pleasing unto the Lord if we have anything in common with the works of darkness. It may be recalled that ‘men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil’, John 3. 19. The product of darkness is always evil and shame in one form or another.

In our day some leaders among professing Christians have promoted the view that in order to ‘win others for the Lord’ we ought to show that we are not any different from them. Nothing could be further from the truth! The believer and unbeliever are as different as day is from night. Let us not be partakers of their works but rather produce fruit for God’s glory.
