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 and yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:5-7
Put on the Armor of Light. To wear this bright, protective covering, you have to put aside deeds of darkness. You live in a world where darkness is prevalent all around you. You need the Lord’s lighted armor to help you see things clearly, protecting you from being led astray by the worldliness that surrounds you.
God wants you to walk in the light with Him. Make every effort to live close to Him, aware of His loving presence. Just as you put clothes on your body, you can also clothe yourself with the Lord. Such nearness to Him will help you make decisions. Sometimes, though, you will make bad choices that lead you into sin. Do not despair when this happens. Because He is your Savior, He has made provision for all your sin. Moreover, the blood that He shed on the cross cleanses you and keeps you walking the the Light.
If you confess your sins, the Lord forgives you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. The Lord is faithful and just, and He delights in your nearness to Him.
