“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that 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 pratice in 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, His son, purifies us from all sin”. ( 1 John 1:5-6 )
God wants us to have an honest fellowship.
Fellowship is a matter of light or darkness.
“God is light” and His children should walk in light.
Light represents what is good, pure true, holy and reliable. Light exposes whatever exists good or bad. In the dark, good and bad look alike, but in the light they can be clearly distinguished.
Darkness represents what is sinful and evil. Darkness cannot exist in the presences of light, sin cannot exist in the presence of God.
A godly character cannot exist in darkness. If you lie to yourself, to God and to others you will lose fellowship.
We can begin our spiritual journey again by asking Jesus Christ for forgiveness, for him to guide our hearts, minds and change our ways. We rely on Jesus strength not our own.
That is when we will find our joy and we are Indeed back into fellowship with God to do His will and serve Him.
My prayer is that The God of peace rule in our hearts and for others to see in us a Godly character, showing His everlasting love to each one of us by sending His one and only son to die on the cross so we can begin our fellowship with Him. Amen.
