“But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.”
1 John 1:7 NLTWhat an absolutely beautiful view of the sun's reflection over our fairly large oxidation pond here at work! Yes, I said oxidation pond!!! At least that's what it smells and looks like up close.
If you think about it, this is a great visualization of what God does for us. You see the Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
Sin can make a beautiful life look and smell bad, just like that oxidation pond, but that's not the plan of God. You see, He gave us the gift of Jesus to cleanse us from all of our sins by dying on the cross. His death brought life and His life became the Light that drives away the darkness.
“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:4-5 NIV
When we give our lives over to Jesus, His Light overcomes our darkness and we begin to reflect the Son! It doesn't matter what your past looked like or even your present. If you give your life to Jesus, He will shine through you and use you to bring Glory to God!
So go on, be confident and walk in His glorious Light!
