"Come, people of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the Lord." (Isaiah 2:5)
During the summer months, it is difficult to avoid the light. It is the season of the sun and she dominates the sky. With over 70 references to light in the NT and over 130 in the OT, scripture talks a lot about light and darkness. 

Through His Word, the Lord speaks plainly to us. When the Spirit dwells within us, He will guide us into understanding. (John 14:26) With Jesus proclaiming Himself as the Light of the world in John 8:12, the mention of light in scripture is something to which we should pay close attention.

So what does it mean to walk in the light of the Lord? The verses before Isaiah 2:5 give us some guidance. I see three key things here:
  • a teachable spirit; accept His instruction (vs 3)
  • a peaceful spirit; lay down your need for power and control (v. 4)
  • a humble spirit; give Him Lordship over your life (vs 2)
"If we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, then we share a common life, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin."  (1 John 1:7)
The light Isaiah talks about is the illumination that will be present in the days to come when the Messiah appears. John speaks of the same Light, now come, and how our Christian walk (actions) should manifest the things of the Spirit. (Gal 5:22)

Therefore, let us walk as children of the Light.
