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. 1 John 1:6-7
Have you ever been in a room or area outside at night where it was pitch black with absolutely no light? Even after your eyes have “adjusted” to the darkness, you can’t see a thing. Nothing. You hope you don’t run into anything and your arms are searching for something-anything-familiar.
God has given us a way out of this spiritual darkness that we’ve been in, through his Son Jesus. Even as Christians there are times when we fumble through the darkness in rebellion or sheer pride, and yet we’re still going through the motions day after day, week after week. We’re living a lie and we know it. But we don’t have to live in the darkness. We can walk into God’s light and accept the forgiveness that God offers.
It’s never too late to repent; it’s never too late to turn back. The journey home is not as far as it seems. He’s waiting for you.
