THE DARK SIDE OF DARKNESS
If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 1 John 1:6
The apostle John is talking about two worlds in this chapter. The first is God’s kingdom here on earth, represented by the light. The second is the natural world and our natural selves, represented by the darkness. A born-again Christian decides each moment which world to live in. It’s not a once and done deal.
If you’re temporarily unforgiving, unloving, concerned about your own rights, or worried about a bad turn of events, you’re in the wrong world. When those things happen, turn from the darkness to the light and say, “I’ll do it Your way.”
