Scripture: 1 John 1:5-7
“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
God is light. In Him there is no darkness. This truth does several things for me. First of all, if I am in Christ, there is no darkness in me either. This allows me to speak truth to myself when I see the darkness around me and may even feel that it is creeping into my own heart. I am His child! I am a child of the light, not of the dark! Secondly, this truth calls me OUT of sin and into repentance.
Do you struggle with the darkness around you? Do you struggle to preach the gospel to yourself when you are discouraged? We all need reminders and this passage is a powerful one that I need so often! If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another! We are covered by His blood! Thank You, Jesus!
You are light, God, and in You is no darkness at all. If I say I have fellowship with You, I will not walk in darkness. I speak this truth aloud to myself, Father, remind me, I am now Your child, a child of the light, not a child of the dark. If i walk in the light as You are in the light, I have fellowship with You and with the Body of Christ. Thank You that the blood of Jesus cleanses me from all sin.
