“…this is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” (I John 1: 5)
Jesus told us the Truth. We can believe him and join his followers in declaring and walking in the full light of this knowledge. God is all that is good and right and loving. He is Life and Truth and in Him is not a single vestige of ugliness, evil, ignorance, destruction. This is Our God, the only One, and a cause for gratitude and continual praise.
This light in Him is the light in us. We have this radiant goodness within us and as the very nature of our being. We can accept without reservation the fullness of this good news of God and what it means for each one of us. When we look for or expect darkness, negativity, a down side, we are really only believing lies, attributing evil to Omnipotent God, the Infinite good. There is no darkness in Him at all. None. Zilch. Zero.
Let’s bask in that wondrous light and believe it. Let’s know that no shadow of fear or limitation, sickness or sin, can have reality in Life, in the God that is all and only perfect good. There are no exceptions or qualifications in this mighty declaration from I John. This realization of the reality of God’s changeless and infinite radiance brought healing to Jesus and his early followers, and is still powerfully and faithfully here to enlighten our way and lighten our load today.
