Light: Part 6

1 John 1:7 - "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."

This verse seems to touch on all the points that have been made before. God is light and wears light. The things that come from him are light. So when it says, "he is in the light," we know there are many different parts of that light to consider. For us to be in the light, we need to be saved and using it to guide us forward in our Christian walk. So what do we get if we know and do all of the above, purification from sin and fellowship with one another. Does that excite you? It should. Because of Jesus we can be made whole and clean. We can have fellowship with him and with our fellow man. Life does not become perfect, but it becomes easier. Walking in the light won't make all our sins and bad parts go away. On the contrary, it makes them more obvious. However, walking in the light gives us the ability to deal with them. It gives us the strength to face our bad parts and make them better.

  1. I love reading verses about being the light of the world. It encourages me to keep my path in the light and out of darkness. It kind of makes me think would I rather be walking through woods (jworld) in the dark (sin) or in the light (with Jesus). Of course in the light because everything seems so much safer in the woods if it is the day time. That is one analogy I like to use to show that walking in the light will keep you safer than walking in the darkness. -jordan
