Walking in the Light

1 John 1:5-7
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is NO darkness at all {NO mixture}. 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.

What path are you choosing to walk in?
Are you walking in the Light?
Are you practicing the truth?

ALL the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth,
… To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. –Ps 25:10

You are not walking in the Light if you despise truth
… or lack mercy or righteousness.

For the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness, righteousness and Truth! –Eph 5:9

You are not walking in the Light if you are afraid to
… use the sword of the Spirit of Truth,
… which is the word of God –Eph 6:17.

Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of  God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not be partakers with them;
Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness,
… but instead even expose them; –Eph 5:3-7, 11

For there are those who come to deceive and bring the way of truth into disrepute –2 Pe 2:2

Do not be deceived! Do not lose heart! Do not remain silent!
Use the sword of the Spirit; Set forth the truth plainly –2 Cor 4:2
Speak the Truth BOLDLY in love –Eph 4:15

Walk in the Light,
… Choose the way, the life and the truth! –Jn 14:6

John 3:19-21
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.

Psalm 86:11
Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.

Follow even thru raging waters and fire —
Fear not; His hand will guide and protect —

Isaiah 43:1-3
But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

His hand will also lift those He calls by name higher —
Where their feet are set upon a Rock to sing the new song —
Only those with pure hearts and clean hands can sing this song.
Psalm 61:1-4
Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
