This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7 NLT
God is Light. All light finds it’s source in God. He is the Light! The sun is a light! The Son (Jesus) is the Light (John 1:1-9)! Because God is Light, He dispels darkness, gives life to humanity, and shines upon our path so we can walk in the truth. Anyone who says they love Jesus but lives a life of darkness is deceived and lying. To know God is to know how to live. His light drives out the darkness in our lives. When we walk in fellowship with Christ Jesus our Lord we receive the corresponding benefit of His radiance as it illuminates everything, including our innermost secrets. God’s Light is fully illuminating. This means that there are no shadows in His Light. When we stand before the natural sunlight we cast a shadow. When we stand before the Son-Light, there are no shadows. The Light of Jesus permeates every crack and crevice of our lives. Only in a relationship with Jesus Christ can we experience His blood cleansing us from sin as His Light exposes our darkness. This is most marvelous!!! God shines His Light into our lives to show us sin and then, in return, offers us redemption through the blood of His Son. I am so thankful that His Light is showing me things in my life that, otherwise, I would not see and then, offers me forgiveness and freedom as His Light drives out the darkness. Are you walking in the Light??
