God is light and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light.
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:5-7
“ 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
Fellowship with God Is Light
God is light means that God is the source and measure of all that is true. Another way to put it would be that nothing is truly understood until it is understood in the light of God.
God is the source of all that is true and whatever is true is true because it conforms to him. He is the pathway to perfect and eternal joy with no disappointments. In the light of God you will not be destroyed by sin.
He who hates his brother is in the darkness and he who loves his brother abides in the light. Walking in the light means being a loving person and walking in the darkness means being a person of hate.
People can desire things more than God, if they are blind by the light of God they walk in darkness. Everyone who loves the world more than God is in the dark.
God is holy, God’s holiness, you may never understand. God’s plan of salvation through the cross of Christ. God’s holiness saves us from the danger. True peace and joy come from being truly reconciled to the holy God through the blood of His Son Jesus.
Christ came to conquer sin. Not only to acquit but also to reform.
