GOD IS LIGHT

1 JOHN 1:5

5This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

As we walk thru the letters of John verse by verse, I highly recommend reading each letter in its entirety during this walk. No doubt you will get even bigger blessings.

1:5-6 Light represents what is good, pure, true, holy, and reliable. Darkness represents what is sinful and evil. The statement “God is light” means that God is perfectly holy and true and that he alone can guide us out of the darkness of sin. Light is also related to truth in that light exposes whatever exists, whether it is good or bad. In the dark, good and evil look alike; in the light, they can be clearly distinguished. Just as darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, sin cannot exist in the presence of a holy God. If we want to have a relationship with God, we must put aside our sinful ways of living. To claim that we belong to him but then to go out and live for ourselves is hypocrisy. Christ will expose and judge such deceit. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS letting your light that is GOD inside of us shine for all the world to see.
