This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 1 John 1:5-6 NIV
This world is full of darkness. The devil is alive in this world and he uses our willingness to sin as a means to engulf us in that darkness. Jesus is our light. There is no darkness in God our Father.
As Christians, we are to share our faith whenever we get a chance to. We are to speak the truth. If we sow seeds while living in the darkness, we are liars and hypocrites. Nobody will take us serious if we don’t practice what we preach.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 NIV
Why is there church? Do I have to go? Technically, you do not have to. Our goal is to walk in the light as He is in the light. When we walk in the light, it is important to have fellowship with other Christians. It helps us stay in the light. We are united by the blood of Christ. Hallelujah!!!!
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us. 1 John 1: 8-10 NIV
The one thing we donot want to do is get into that holier-than-thou mentality. We cannot claim to be living in the truth and walking in the light if we claim to not have sin or claim to be more morally inept than other people.
If we claim to be without sin, we make God out to be a liar and Jesus’ actions to be in vain. Talk about throwing stones at our creator. Yet, some people do that. We serve an awesome God. He is just and His forgiveness is quicker than a blink of an eye.
God knows what happens behind closed doors and we cannot hide our actions from God. Light begets light. Darkness begets darkness. What happens in the dark will be revealed in the light. Praise be to God!
