WALK IN THE LIGHT
Right near the very end of the New Testament in the Bible, the Apostle John gives us these vital and precious promises from the Lord:
- GOD IS LIGHT AND IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL.
- 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. HALLELUJAH!
The Apostle John said, “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 the truth’. (*Also translated ‘do not the truth’ or ‘the absolute negative’ of the 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” (1 John 1: 5-7). (*See Strong’s Concordance).
To walk in the light means, that we walk in the light of God’s PROMISES and we walk in the light of His TRUTH. we walk in the light of HIS UNDERSTANDING and we walk in the light of His LOVE. Jesus said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:16&17).
