At times I think that we, as believers, forget just how holy God is. His holiness is so paramount that old testament Israelites knew that just to look upon the face of God would mean death. Even Moses was only permitted to look at God’s backside from the cleft in the mountain. He is so holy, that only the blood of his son can allow us to survive in his presence. We serve a holy God, a God in which there is no darkness at all. First John chapter 1, verse 5 – 7 says:
"This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light, in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin."
It is every believer’s desire to have fellowship with God. But John tells us that if we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. So, the key is not to walk in darkness. Yes, we are exposed to darkness. And sometimes we can even get tainted by it. But we can’t walk in it. If we do, we shouldn’t claim to have fellowship with God. I know we’re only human, but God is spirit. And in him there is no darkness at all. So, I encourage you to do everything you can to walk in the light. If you do, you’ll not only be in right relationship with God, but John tells us that we’ll also have fellowship with one another as well.
“God is light. And in him there is no darkness at all”. So, if we want to have fellowship with him we cannot walk in darkness. If Satan has found a stronghold in your life, I encourage you to do everything you can to get free from whatever sin you’re in. Because to have true fellowship with God, means we can’t walk in darkness.
