1 John 1:5-7
5This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth;
7but 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.
In our office, I am in charge of some of the maintenance that needs to go on. What that really means is that when something breaks or a light bulb goes out, I am told and I pass it along to our building maintenance person.
When it is dark and dreary outside, you want all the lights on to get rid of the darkness. Every light makes things less sad. So if your life seems sad and miserable, maybe you have moved out from God's light. The Bible tells us that in God, there is no darkness, no sin. Our sin, darkens and stains our lives. Sometimes the stain goes to the very soul and heart of us. We have to fellowship with him, ask for forgiveness, practice the truth and let Jesus wash away our very sins.
What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
O precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow.
No other fount I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
