But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
[I John 1:7]
Glory to God!
This is our experience as we walk consistent with the Word of God. To walk in the light is to walk consistent with His Word. This is true fellowship.
Once, the Holy Spirit impressed upon my heart His desire to walk with children of God sophisticated in the Light; sons and daughters who have come to know God and His Oracles intimately and are walking in it. This is a chief desire of the Helper.
That we all be lifted to those sublime heights of revelation…that we come to have His mind, His desires…His passions! That we become “kindred spirits” with the Helper…sharing in the vision, patience and tribulations of the kingdom and Lordship of Jesus Christ! Glory! May we be lifted to these lofty heights in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Glory to God!
Again, it is as we fellowship in the Light of His Word that we truly benefit from the power in the blood of Jesus. Look at this truth: walking consistent with the Word of God on all themes, means the blood of Jesus automatically cleanses us from all sin. Note that this action of the blood on sin is not necessarily predicated on asking for forgiveness first. Note that this is background to our understanding of I John 1:9.
