John tells us that … 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. 1 John 1:7 (NIV)

So how do we walk in the light?

That’s a great question, I’m so glad you asked.

Teaching

The Bible has different motifs to illustrate how Christ’s death and resurrection changes everything for us. Light and Dark is a strong motif. Let me give you two examples.

Colossians 1:9–14 (NLT) 9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. 11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, 12 always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. 13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

Ephesians 5:6–14 (NLT) Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. 7 Don’t participate in the things these people do. 8 For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! 9 For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.10 Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. 11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. 12 It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. 13 But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, 14 for the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”

So…

Do I WALK in the light as He is in the light?

Tool

Always WALK in The Light Tool

1 Thessalonians 5:4–5 — “But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day.”

W — Welcome those God wants you to help — Matthew 25:40

A — Awaken to Holiness — Hebrews 12:14–15

L — Love your neighbour as yourself — Mark 12:31

K — Know why you meet together — Hebrews 10:24–25

Let’s unpack that.

W -Welcome those God wants you to help

Matthew 25:40 — “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

Do I do what I can for who God wants me to bless?

A — Awaken to holiness

Hebrews 12:14–15 — “ Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.’”

Do I work at living a holy life?

L — Love your neighbour as yourself

Mark 12:31 NLT — “The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.

Do I love my neighbour as myself?

K — Know why you meet together

Hebrews 10:24–25 NLT — “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”

Do I think of ways to motivate others towards acts of love and good works?

Challenge

Have you been thinking about someone that you’ve may have been avoiding?

Maybe it’s someone you know you need to forgive.

Maybe you have given up on being part of a church.

If you’ve been hurt in community, you need to be healed in community.

Holy Spirit will empower you to accomplish every good work prompted by faith. If the “what if?” of faith is rising in you, act on it.
