1 John 1:7-9

Walk in the Light

Transcript

1 John 1:7-9 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin if we say that we have no sin we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us if we confess our sins He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness wow what a powerful scripture it says when we walk in the light He forgives us for everything there is such a powerful motivation many times for people to cover and hide sin but when we do that do you know what happens is it doesn’t remain hidden it never remains hidden long term and instead sin that’s hidden comes out at the most inopportune times the other thing that I’ve noticed is that when people hide something they don’t want anybody to find out about it they’ve hidden something in their heart it strips them of confidence and it gives the devil an opportunity to black mail them because there’s always the thought this is going to come out people are going to find out about this they’re going to know about this and it just gives opportunity for the enemy to create a black mail situation don’t ever allow that in your life when you bring into the light and I don’t mean publicly exposing something in a newsletter or to the newspaper what I’m talking about is coming and bringing what needs to be confessed first of all to the LORD and secondly to one or two people that you trust that you can share with that you can open your heart to who will pray for you not condemn you, not judge you and not throw you out but will help you if you have people like that in your life that you can open your heart to and bring hidden things into the light it says right here what we just read that the blood of Yeshua Messiah will cleanse you will free you, will heal you the worst thing people could do is to just leave sin hidden this is especially true for leaders how many leaders can we recount that have had hidden sexual affairs or hidden financial misdeeds that are in their lives and guess what the enemy will choose the time when it’s revealed and then it’s not revealed to a small group of people who love them who can help them then it’s revealed publicly I heard a man say years ago all of us have the opportunity to choose either humilty which is a wise man understanding and walking in his true condition before God and exposing it before trusted friends or humiliation which is a foolish man being exposed publicly for all to see you have your choice of humility or humiliation and I guarantee humility is much better to walk in I encourage you today walk in the light don’t leave things hidden is there something in your heart you need to share with your wife or with your husband is there something that’s been hidden in your heart that you’ve thought I’ll just deal with it me and Jesus, just alone in my prayer closet no you never get free that way and I’ll tell you why because the pride in your heart that doesn’t want anybody else to know that pride will continue to keep that bondage alive the only way you break that pride is come and bring into the light before a couple of trusted friends the hidden area, the hidden sin the hidden bondage the hidden area of struggle when you bring it into the light then He is faithful and righteous to forgive us, to cleanse us and God will use others around us to free us the very thing that we’re afraid of that people will judge us condemn us and throw us out almost every time I’ve ever shared with trusted friends something that was an embarrassment to me something I didn’t want anybody to know you know what happened God poured out His grace through those people and they loved me they walked with me, they helped me not that there’s been any big hidden sin recently or anything I’m not saying that what I am saying is that everyone of us have things periodically that we struggle with that we need to bring into light with others and share those things and allow God to bring His grace and the blood of Yeshua to cleanse us from all iniquity I just want to ask is there anything in your life today that’s been hidden that needs to be opened up and I’m sure Holy Spirit is speaking to you right now and He will give you opportunity to share that I just want to pray for you Father I pray for each one watching today anything that’s hidden that LORD you would bring to us the desire to bring that into light with a couple of trusted friends or with a wife, with a husband Father show us who and show us the timing we trust you to do that because we want to be free we don’t want to walk around with hidden time bombs on the inside I thank you for each person God and for your Holy Spirit for your grace and for your love I pray blessing on you this day in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
