1 John 1:7. But if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

How do we know if we are walking in God’s Light? This says we have fellowship with one another and we are cleansed from sin when we are in the Light. Being cleansed from sin means we have confessed our sins and repented. To repent we must turn away from that we were doing or thinking and turn toward God, our Light. When we see our fellowship is broken with someone it is a sign we are not walking in the Light. It’s time for a course correction. I know when I face God and see the path I have walked on this earth I’ll see it zig and zag through Light and darkness.
Our question is when we slip into the darkness will we choose to make the necessary course correction and face the Light of our God?

Light

John 3:20-21 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Jesus spoke often about light and salt. He tells us we who believe and follow Him are the light of the world and we are to shine. In actuality it Is God’s Light that fills us believers and we are to allow it to shine through us. Light shines to the outside. It benefits no one if it only shines within itself. Light makes it possible for us to see dirt. It makes it possible to see options and also stumbling blocks. People tend to prefer darkness. We don’t want to see the dirt in our lives and hearts. How do we turn on the Light to see the darkness within ourselves? We get into God’s Word. God’s Word if Life and Light. When we get into His Word we realize how dirty we are. When we allow His Light to sine on our dirt we are then able to confess it, turn away from it and walk in obedience and fellowship with God. Our question is are we willing to let our light shine on our thoughts, words and actions as well as allow others to see what God’s light shines on in our lives and there’s?
