Ephesians 5:8-10: "For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light. (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord."
D.L. Moody said, "I believe the family was established long before the church, and my duty is to my family first. I am not to neglect my family."
Leonard Ravenhill said, "There are two kinds of people in the world—only two kinds. Not black or white, rich or poor, but those either dead in sin or dead to sin."
As children of the Light, we ought to show forth the fruit of the Spirit. The Spirit is the Holy Spirit living inside of us. What is inside of us should show forth in our actions and in our words. 
Some of the oldest versions of Paul's letter to the Ephesians -- including the Syrian, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Vulgate, and some of the writings of the early church fathers -- quote this verse as saying the "fruit of the Light" rather than the "fruit of the Spirit." Obviously, either way gets the point across just fine, but some scholars believe "fruit of the Light" is correct seeing that Paul has been contrasting light and darkness in this passage.
Jesus is the Light of the World, and He has commanded us to let our light shine.
