“Walk In The Light Of God!”
The other day Doh told us how he accompanied his blind friend, Fon to his home. As soon as they entered the house Fon switched on the light. Surprised at the action Doh asked him, “Fon, you are blind, why switch on the light?” Fon replied, “Doh my friend, I switched on the light for you. I do not need light because in darkness or in light I see very well.”
What an irony! A blind man switching on the light for the benefit of a man with sight! No doubt Jesus told some Pharisees, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains” (Jn.9:41).
According to Scriptures light and darkness are metaphors. Light represents what is good, true and holy, while darkness represents what is evil and false.
“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, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”
Seen this way there exist none who can cast the first stone because “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…If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.”
These words serve as yardsticks to prevent us from sinning. “But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One…” who is the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.
My friend, it is not enough to say, “I know him” without doing what he commands. Obedience to his words makes God’s love truly complete in us. Let us therefore strive to walk as Jesus did if we claim to live in him (I Jn. 1:5- 2:6).
Sunday prayer: Holy Spirit guide me to walk in the light so as to make God’s love truly complete in me. Amen!
Have a blessed Sunday! Peace be with you!
