TEXT: 1 John 1:5-7
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto 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 the truth:
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.
Key verse: Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:
The first pronouncement of God at creation was, “Let there be light!” Before that pronouncement, the world was in total darkness and void. As man cannot see in darkness, so God cannot operate in darkness. God is light and there is no darkness in Him at all. Jesus is the light of the world. He brought the gospel message to turn people from darkness to light, from sinfulness to holiness, to save them from hell and give them eternal life in heaven. John 1:4, 5 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Darkness belongs to Satan and his human agents. It is their comfort zone. They are comfortable there because darkness provides for them a cover to perpetrate sin and do all kinds of evil. Being people under satanic manipulation and deception, they think since men cannot see the wickedness they are doing, God Himself does not see them and cannot bring them to account.
John 3:19-21 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. If you belong to God, you will operate in the light. Nobody lights a lamp and hides it under the table. He lights it to brighten the room so he puts it on the table. In your word, in your thought and in your deed, let it be clear to all that see and hear you that truly you belong to the light. Have nothing to do with the evil deeds of darkness like stealing, cheating, lying, immorality and every form of godlessness. Stop sinning and live holy. 1 Thessalonians 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Thought for the day: As a child of light, abstain from all appearances of evil.
Song for the day: Heaven is holy, you must be holy, no sinner will enter there.
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 10-12; Acts 17:16-34
