Truth and Light

1 John 1:5-10, NIV, "This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you:  God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.  If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from every sin.  If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives."

1 John 2: 1-2, NIV, "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin.  But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.  He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world."

Light and truth go hand in hand.  You cannot have one without the other.  If you don't have the truth found only in the Bible then you can't walk in the light.  Many people think they have "the truth", and think they are walking in the light, but they are not and are sadly being deceived. Don't be one of them.  Read the Bible, and ask the Lord to show you the truth.  I promise you He will.

Salvation is such a wonderful gift.  If you belong to Jesus you will be walking in truth and light. He loves you all so much. 

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus.  Thank you for Your Word and for Your gift of salvation.  I pray for all those who are deceived and I ask that You would open their eyes and show them the truth.  Thank You Father for being so faithful and never leaving us even when we have left You.  Your love is unending and I for one am grateful for Your sacrifice and love.  I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.
