So, I’ve been reading through 1 John this week.
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
6 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.
7 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 all sin.
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us out sings and purify us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar, and his word has no place in our lives.
Pretty clear on what is said, yes?
We, well, I fall back into darkness a lot I feel. Maybe not in ways that you fall into darkness, but I still fall into darkness.
Striving to be holy in this world is probably one of the hardest things, but who said that following Jesus was an easy thing? In the end, He’s the one doing everything.
After getting out of that darkness, it’s another obstacle and struggle to try and not fall back into that same darkness again. BUT, it’s important to try. Don’t give up so easily…
Mm, I don’t know what else to say…
