thought for the day

1 John 1:5-10

‘If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkenss we lie and do not live in the truth.’

How often do I forget that walking in the light and living in truth is not pretending I have it altogether and am sorted but that I am broken and sinful? Walking in light includes confession and recieveing forgiveness from Him who is faithful. Light and confession of sin are not opposed to each other but go hand in hand. Let us rejoice in the invitation to walk in light to do so fully and freely and not hide our sin but confess it and enslaved to it.
