1 john 1:7-10

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.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

 

Walking in the light, through the Word of God the indwelling Holy Spirit shows the Christian the he;

1; still possesses the old nature (vs 8)

2; still needs the forgiveness of sin (vs 9-10)

The very blood of Christ is the divine solution for the both problems.

To walk in the light is to have constant fellowship with God and his Son. It is our sin that interrupts this fellowship, we must choose whether we want to be carnal believers and have no regular fellowship, no direction or guidance in our lives because of sinning, or have the regular benefit and joy of constantly being in his presence and feeling led and blessed.

The choice is ours, regular daily blessings or a life of grief and carnal benefit, but still saved.

Sin interrupts fellowship but cannot alter the relationship. Confession restores fellowship and immediately confessing after carnal acts keeps the fellowship unbroken.

You would think we would always make the wise choice, alas we often don’t; and unfortunately we are told to ‘get saved again’ when the problem is realizing that a simple prayer of confession and a contrite heart will fix the feeling of separation, which we often confuse with being lost and out of the economy of God. When nothing could be farther from the truth, we have strayed, not fallen out of His Grace.

My sheep hear my voice, you can always come back home, that’s the marvelous story of God’s grace.
