God Is Light, And In Him Is No Darkness At All

I came across this passage during my bible study.  God is light.  This is a message for everyone.

God is light, and in him is no darkness at all

This verse comes from 1 John 1: 1-9

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 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.

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 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. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

God wants us to be in fellowship with him and walk in his light.  But to do so, we must believe he sent his Son to us and confess our sins to him so that we can be in the light of his presence.  Forgiveness comes when we believe through faith in Father God who loved us and that he sent his Son Jesus Christ to die in our place, and we confess our sins to him and accept his forgiveness.  The bible says he will forgive us when we ask and then we can walk in fellowship with the light who is God our heavenly Father.

It reminds me of another passage of scripture about the love of God and light: John 3:16-21

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

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.”

Be wise and be blessed!
