Walk in the Light [1 John 1:7 Daily Devotional]
Jesus is and is in the light. As we follow him and remain in community with each other, we can know with confidence that the Lord is purifying us from all sin. The first thing to notice here is that community (“fellowship”) is a result of being in the light. We can’t do life alone, so it’s important that we find a good, Christian community. Secondly, it’s in that community and through Jesus’s sacrifice that we’re being purified. Again, the knowledge of this is a result of being in the light, and the community around us will help us recognize that in new ways.
How to Walk in the Light
To walk in the light, you must be in community with other believers, and you must recognize that you’re being purified by Jesus through his sacrifice. Find a community by finding a local church you like and get involved there. Serve the community and watch as the Lord opens your eyes and your heart to the world around you. That community will also help you recognize all the things Jesus is doing in your life.
Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice. Help me to live my life in community and in the knowledge that your sacrifice is purifying me. I know purification is a process, so give me the patience I need as you work in me. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
