For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),
Ephesians 5:8-9 (NKJV)
We have been set free from darkness and we have been made light in the Lord. Remembering our identity in Christ becomes the foundation for strong and mature faith, and as a result we will see the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in our life.
