Truth and Light
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.
