Delivered from Darkness - Col. 1:12-13
Exodus and return from exile are key themes in the Scriptures. The Apostle Paul makes reference to these hugely important events. He compares your salvation to the deliverance of God's people from slavery in Egypt. He does so, so as to elicit gratitude. Look at what you once were. You have now been delivered from the tyranny of darkness and translated into the kingdom of light; the kingdom of the Son of the God's love.
