Monday Motivation: God is Light

1 John 1:7, “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 cleanses us from all our sin.”

God is light. In Him, there is no  darkness. When we think of light in terms of God, we think of holiness, purity, truth. When we think of darkness, we think of falsehood, sin, or wrongdoing. These two are stark opposites. Where there is light, there can not be darkness. Where there is darkness, there can not be light. 

So, if we are walking in the light, as He [God] is the light, then we have fellowship with one another. When it says here that we have fellowship with one another, with other believers,  it is because of the blood of Jesus his Son. It is because we have asked Jesus to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Jesus’ blood continually cleanses us, because we continually step into sin. His blood covers all our sins and allows us to be characterized by His holiness. Our fellowship with other believers should encourage our faith and walk with the Lord.

Walk in the light. Walk in His truth. In your routine, walk in the light. While serving others, walk in the light. When you suffer, walk in the light. 

ACTION STEP with your kids: Read 1 John 1:7 with your kids. List ways that God is holy. Take an opportunity with your kids who have asked Jesus into their hearts to take this opportunity to confess their sins and ask the Lord to help them walk in the light. Encourage them to see their right choices as living in the light and not darkness.
