The Doorpost: Stay out of the darkness and in the light
Mike Miller · Apr 01, 2016
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 practice the truth.
1 John 1:5-6
God is light. If we secretly (or openly) walk in darkness, we are not having fellowship with Him, no matter how loudly we proclaim our love for Him or how many good things we do.
That doesn’t mean that we never sin. Verse 8 following the passage above says that if we claim we don’t sin, we are fooling ourselves. But when we bring our sins to the light of Christ for cleansing by His blood, we have fellowship with God.
Be careful to stay out of the darkness.
For the Kingdom,
