But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, 1 John 1:7a
The Apostle John, the author of this book, walked with Jesus and was taught by Him. John knew Jesus always knew what He was doing, and where He was going. Jesus walked in the light… even at night. Those who fellowshipped, or worked with Him, were also walking in the light, because they were involved in what He was doing.
In verse 5 the apostle John declared, “God is light.” God is never confused about anything. He knows exactly what He's doing and where He's going. And God is working in this world…
John stated in verse 6, “if we say we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie.” What John said is really not complicated. If you say you work for Shell Oil, and you never clock in, not one worker has ever seen you, and you aren’t on their payroll… it is clear that you’re not telling the truth. If someone says they are walking with God, but they aren't involved in what He's doing, their name is not on His work rolls, then they are not telling the truth.
To walk with God all you must do is get involved in what He’s doing on this earth. Get involved with Him… it’s where the light is.
(Oh... I know the person in the picture isn't walking in the light... he's paddling in the light... but I thought it was a cool picture and wanted to share it.)
