In the Light

1 John 1:7

Originated from stars.
Reflecting ourselves —
we recognize that our building blocks
is stardust.

But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

1 John 1:7, LSB

The issue of sin is it likes to stay hidden or obscured. This reality is true whether something sinful is made legal and acceptable by the government or not. The consumption of alcohol is legal in most places in the world and even is allowable with some boundaries within the Bible, but drunkenness and the things that come with overindulgence are neither acceptable within Scripture nor, in society. The things that are not meant to be done in the open are found to be troubling when exposed to the light of day. As followers of Christ, we are to be mindful of this because of the problems that sin will bring within our fellowship. We are called to be holy, which is set apart, and not like those who are not of God. When we walk faithfully with one another we are not to try and do things that we want to keep hidden from one another but live our lives openly and honestly. Accepting correction where we fall short and offering gentle correction to brothers and sisters who are in error. In Christ, sin has no power and cannot bind us as we turn all things over to Him. Let us be a people of light and in Christ know that the darkness cannot overcome us.

Let us pray. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger, and I ask you to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that in all I do today, I may please you. For into your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel watch over me, that the wicked foe have no power over me. Amen.
