WALKING IN THE LIGHT
1 John 1:1-10 KJV 1.That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have
seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of
2.(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you
that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3.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.
4.And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
5.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.
6.If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not
7.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.
8.If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9.If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness.
10.If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
1 John 2:1-8 KJV 1.My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2.And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins
of the whole world.
3.And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4.He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth
is not in him.
5.But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we
that we are in him.
6.He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
7.Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from
the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
8.Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you:
because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
ARE YOU WALKING IN THE LIGHT?
SO MANY PEOPLE TODAY ARE WALKING IN THE LIGHT BUT DARKNESS IS ALL AROUND THEM.
Genesis 1:1-5 KJV 1.In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2.And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3.And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4.And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5.And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the
morning were the first day.
WE ASSOCIATE LIGHT WITH BEING ABLE TO SEE THINGS. THIS IS TRUE BUT THE FATHER IS THE
SOURCE OF LIGHT THAT IS IMPORTANT TO US, FROM THE BEGINNING AND THROUGH ALL ETERNITY.
John 1:1-17 KJV 1.In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
2.The same was in the beginning with God.
3.All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4.In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5.And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6.There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7.The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him
8.He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9.That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10.He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11.He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12.But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to
them that believe on his name:
13.Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man,
but of God.
14.And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory
as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15.John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that
cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16.And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17.For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
WE AS CHRISTIANS ARE WITNESSES OF THE LIGHT.
I REMEMBER MY DAD TELLING ME HOW IMPORTANT THAT IT WAS TO LIVE OUR LIVES AS A WITNESS FOR
JESUS CHRIST THROUGH THE WAY WE LIVED. I REMEMBER THAT HE GAVE UP GOING TO THE MOVIES AS
A MEANS OF FASTING. HE MADE A PROMISE TO THE LORD THAT HE WOULD NOT GO AND HE DID NOT
EVER GO AGAIN. HE WAS TEACHING A SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS AT THE TIME AND ALSO GAVE UP SMOKING
CIGARETTES. HE WANTED TO TRY AND LIVE HIS LIFE AS FAITHFUL TO THE LORD'S WORD AS
POSSIBLE. WHEN WE BECOME BORN AGAIN TO JESUS CHRIST, WE BECOME SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF HIS.
WE NEED TO FOLLOW HIS WILL FOR US AND GROW IN THE LIGHT.
THE WORLD WE ARE LIVING IN NOW IS SO UNFAIR ON A DAILY BASIS. SOMETIMES WE AS CHRISTIANS
AND OTHERS SEEM LIKE THERE IS NO BREAK FROM THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS. SO MANY
CHRISTIANS ARE WALKING IN THE LIGHT AND DARKNESS IS ALL AROUND THEM. SOME ARE PULLED DOWN
TO THE DARKNESS AND FIND THEMSELVES WALKING TOO CLOSE TO IT AND BECOMING A PART OF IT.
THIS IS WHERE WE SHOULD GO TO THE LORD AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. THEN GET BACK ON THE PATH
THAT THE LORD HAS FOR US TO FOLLOW. WE ARE ALL SINNERS. WE ARE EITHER SAVED SINNERS GOING
TO HEAVEN BECAUSE OF THE CROSS THAT JESUS CHRIST SUFFERED AND DIED ON SO THAT WE COULD GO
TO HEAVEN OR WE ARE UNSAVED SINNERS THAT ARE HEADING STRAIGHT TO HELL.
Romans 3:23 KJV 23.For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 KJV 26.For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
DO YOU WANT TO WALK IN THE LIGHT AND GO TO HEAVEN?
DO YOU WANT TO WALK AND STAY IN THE DARKNESS AND GO TO HELL?
IT IS YOUR CHOICE. WE WERE CREATED TO HAVE THE CHOICE TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST OR NOT.
