1 John 1:5-7

"This then is the message we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
If we say we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."
1 John 1:5-7

I love this... "in him is no darkness at all."  Sometimes I feel like I have darkness inside me, and I know that with God's help, I can get rid of the dark parts until one day I am like him... no darkness at all.  To walk with him, we have to have the spirit, and to have the spirit, we have to do the right things.  When we do things wrong, or make the choice against what God wanted, we somehow just end up not getting anywhere that day.  We have to get back on track, and get the Spirit into our lives, or we just wander around, and don't make any headway in that quest to lose the dark and keep the light.  And the third verse here is the icing on the cake... when we do those things, we not only get the blessings of calmness and accomplishment and all the rest of the things that walking with God automatically gives us, but we also get fellowship with other people who are ... light. :)  God cleanses us from the darkness that is in us all, so we can be pure light as well.  Let's do our best to get rid of our darkness today, and walk with God in the light. :)
