5 This is the message we heard from Jesus[c] and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. 6 So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. ~ 1John 1:5-6
I have written over the last 2 months from Proverbs, 1 and 2 Timothy – 1 and 2 Peter and now I’m going into 1,2 and 3 John…. In these next three books he writes with a very deep truth…. and again it’s all about our “Love Relationship” with Jesus.
He states, GOD IS LIGHT and there NO darkness in Him. The light exposes everything, there is NO hiding when in the light, there are NO secrets when in the light, you can’t fool anyone in the light. If you are walking in the light, if you are in relationship with Him, in LOVE with Him and RESTING in Him it is impossible to be in darkness. BUT if you claim to claim to be in the light,…. claiming to be a “strong” man or woman of God, a person who loves the Lord with all you have and yet have secret sin…. the word says that you are a liar!! It is impossible to live in the darkness and have fellowship with God.
God still loves you in the darkness, but the relationship is void……he will never stop loving you and wanting you but he will hand you over to the desires of your heart. It is not a game, a relationship to play with, it is you ETERNAL salvation…. you will never be in the light if you are only looking for an escape route when life is over…. you enter into the light as you fall in Love with Him. KNOW HIM!!! This takes place by His word, prayer, worship, fellowship and obedience. A road less traveled.
As for me, I wake up every morning with this… I am a liar, I cannot be trusted with my life, I NEED you today Jesus, expose to me any wrong in my heart, any anger, jealousy, envy, hate. I need you, I need to be in your resting place this day.
When you get there….. everything is exposed.
Now go out and have an EPIC day today!!
