Walking in the Light! 1 John 1:5-10

Good morning everyone,
Have you ever tried to get around in the dark?  I frequently stay in different hotels around the country and some nights I'll wake up and forget where I'm visiting!  For a brief moment, it is a very strange feeling.  We familiarize ourselves with the path that leads to the restroom at home so we can turn on the light to see but on the road I've found myself in some strange spots.  Unable to find a light switch to get my bearings, I've been frustrated to the point of having to ask God to show me the way.  For God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all.  If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the Truth.  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 cleanses us from all sin.  If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the Truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.  Why do we wait until it is a last ditch effort to ask God to turn on the Light?  He is the Light and if we have Him dwelling inside of us, then that illumination will guide us and we won't be frustrated!  We won't end up in places we don't recognize!  Ask Him to be your 'Guiding Light' today so that you will become a reflection of who He is!!  Who knows, it just may be the difference that helps someone else find their way to the Light!
Your brother in Christ,
