12/27/2012 1 John 1:7 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.
We are to walk in the light, as He is in the light. Verse 5 says that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. Jesus abides in the light of God our Father and so do we. We love God's Word and with the help of the Holy Spirit we do what God's Word tells us to do. We also abide in Jesus who leads our every step as we continue in fellowship with Him the one we love. We are those who abide in Jesus and His Word and do what God tells us to do.
When we walk in the light we have fellowship with one another. How precious it is when we who love Jesus come together to honor and worship and adore Him. We know the love of Jesus to flow through us to our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, and we truly seek their good. As we walk together and both are in love with Jesus, the fellowship we share is a unity. We are one in Christ and our desire is the same to Glorify Jesus, and see His will done here on earth as it is in heaven. We walk in the same light and serve the same Lord, and we are on the same team supporting and encouraging one another. How lovely the fellowship we share in Jesus the light.
The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin. Our most dear and precious Lord Jesus has gone to the cross for us and shed His precious blood so that we might be cleansed. God now looks upon us with a heart full of love for us as He has for Jesus, because we are hidden in Christ and our sins are gone. We are treated by God just as if we had never sinned. We are God's Children, we belong to Him, He has bought us back with the blood of Jesus. God loves us His Children, and will take care of us, since we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
Father we pray to walk in the light as you are in the light, and to do what your Word tells us to do, and to be good witnesses of you, and your love. In Jesus name we pray.
