1 John 1:5–7 (NKJV)5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 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 Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.Christian’s fellowship. Christian’s fellowship with each other. Outside of God there is darkness. Christians do not walk in darkness. Christians fellowship with one another in the Light of Jesus Christ.Jesus is the Light that tells us God is holy, righteous, and pure. Where there is light there is no darkness. The light of Jesus Christ shows the truth about the world. The light of Jesus shows the truth about each professing Christian. “If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.” We live in a time where many profess with their mouth, they have accepted Christ but within themselves lives the darkness of this world.Where is the hope of the Christian faith? Christians do sin but do not live in the darkness of sin. When a Christian sins, he then confesses that sin and God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanses us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:8-9). It seems to the most miserable person is the one who professes Jesus as Savior but lives in the darkness of sin. The only way we can have fellowship with God is through Jesus. Jesus is the sacrifice for us. 1 John 4:10 “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” We have been set free to receive the love of God, to live in the love of God, to love God. It is ALL ABOUT JESUS and His sacrifice for us. If you have a problem with this then you have been fed a lie. The only peace is found in Jesus. Total commitment to Jesus is the only way of salvation and peace.
