God is Light

“…..God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.”

I John 1: 5b, 6

Have you ever met someone that talked a great deal about faith, and never really lived it? What a mess that can be!

We know that God is perfect and yet we are not. So, some may look at this verse and ones like it, and say that if there is any sin in our hearts at all, we are doomed!

And yet this is more of a warning to all of us, not to lie to ourselves. It does not speak to our occasional mess ups, it does speak though to being phony, or not living out our faith, not living for Him. That really is walking in darkness.

Fortunately there is forgiveness, and we have an advocate with the Father!

Heavenly Father help us to live for You and rely on Your grace working in our lives. Forgive us when we do mess up, and help us to live for You! In Christ’s name, amen.

A Note of Thanks

20170609_205835

First of all I want to thank each of you, for being here and reading these posts. More importantly thank you your faith, and your examples of faith that are so encouraging!

I also wanted to let you know that I am not a professional blogger, I make no money from it, and I have nothing to sell. Which means I work a job, and one with very difficult hours at times, so there are occasions where I will not be here for a couple of days, reading your work.

I do look forward to reading your work! I have several blogs because of my love for writing, but this is my faith based one, so it is very important to me.

Thanks again for reading!
