You Are Light

IMG_3216As I’ve met with a group of over 50 men on Friday mornings this past year, I John 1:7 has been a core verse for us:

“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 every sin.”

What a great verse for us to remember, and to live out. This verse reminds Christ-followers that since “God is light,” we do not intentionally walk in darkness as we did before. Eph. 5:8 says the same, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light…”

At one time we were defined by darkness; now we are defined by light.

Our group has applied this challenge “to walk in the light” to our relationships with each other as well. We have increasingly entrusted our stories, our joys and hopes, and our struggles and challenges with one another.

In doing so, two wonderful things happen:
“We have fellowship with one another”– We discover we aren’t alone in our journey; many others have similar circumstances
“The blood of Jesus…purifies us”– Our shared faith in the power of the blood of Christ has a transforming affect on us.

Are there men, or is there one man, in your life with whom you can have this kind of walk? Will you reach out to him?
