The one who claims to be in the light while hating a brother or sister is in the darkness even now. The person loving a brother and sister stays in the light, and there is nothing in the light that causes a person to stumble. 1 John 2:9-10 (CEB)
I’ve noticed a trend in this Bible study series regarding “The Light.”
Several of the topics contain those words. We’ve had ‘Children Of The Light’,’ ‘Put Your Light On A Stand’‘, ‘Let Your Light Shine’ and today’s topic – Live in the Light.
I can only conclude the reason for this is because of it’s importance in living our faith on a daily or even an hourly basis. We have to be committed to living in the all consuming love God has toward us and allowing His love to flow freely through us to all of God’s elect.
If we’re harboring ill feelings toward any of our brothers and sisters in Christ, it needs to be dealt with, right away. If we can’t do it on our own, that’s okay. We have a helper. The Holy Spirit. A sincere desire and a prayerful request to the Father in Jesus’ name is all that’s needed to effect the desired change.
