1 John 1

Light and dark are themes throughout John's writing. He paints a picture of the flesh and our worldly desires as being in darkness and in stark contrast, paints Jesus Christ as the light. Jesus illuminates our sin and our condition for what it really is. Jesus is the light that directs our paths. And if we claim to know Jesus and be in relationship with the light but continue to walk in the darkness, then we are fooling ourselves. Confess some areas of darkness in your life today. Ask Jesus to be the light and reveal them to you, forgive you, and guide you in the light today.
