light / darkness / sin / forgiveness

1 John 1

5 This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you:

God is light,

and there is no darkness in him at all.

6 So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness;

we are not practicing the truth.

7 But if we are living in the light,

as God is in the light,

then we have fellowship with each other,

and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

  8 If we claim we have no sin,

we are only fooling ourselves

and not living in the truth.

9 But if we confess our sins to him,

he is faithful

and just

to forgive us our sins

and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

10 If we claim we have not sinned,

we are calling God a liar

and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.

I've tried to think of something to say about this passage,

but everything I write seems so redundant to the stupendous truth of this passage.

Just read it, absorb it, & tell the people around you today about it.
