In this first episode in our journey through 1 John, we begin in verse 5 - “This is the message that we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all…”. Unpackaging this verse and connecting the not-so-subtle dots between this and other related passages in the Scriptures can be a life changing exercise. Are you ready?

Sin. Light. Honesty. For those trying to overcome sin, 1 John is a critical foundation. It establishes our mindset and lays forth “the rules” so to speak. So, one of the assumed “rules” in Christinaity is that to be honest, we have to admit that we are dirty sinners. That we will always be sinners. And that anyone who says they AREN’T currently embroiled in sinful habits is a liar. 1 John is used as a prooftext for that position. On the other hand, 1 John is used by others to say that if we DO sin, we aren’t walking in the light. Which is true? Both? Neither?

If you CARE about trying to please the Lord, we believe this episode is helpful in answering these questions. Ready? Let’s GO!
