But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin (1 John 1:7).

To walk in the light is to walk in the light of God’s Word. It means to walk in the light of those things that are consistent with God’s provisions for the new creation as revealed by the Word. If we’re not walking in the light, there’s no fellowship because light is inconsistent with darkness.

The Word reveals, for example, that as new creations, we have justification. You’re to walk in the light of your justification. You’ve been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21). You’re to walk in the light of your righteousness. To walk in the light of your righteousness means that you’re walking in consistency with what God thinks; His light about righteousness.

God’s light about righteousness is that, it’s a gift that’s imparted into anyone who believes in Jesus Christ. So, you can say, “Father, I dwell in your light; in your light, righteousness is a gift that’s given to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ; therefore, I have that gift in the Name of Jesus. I am righteous. Hallelujah.” That’s walking in His light.

The carnal man however walks by his senses. He says, “I just don’t feel like God is with me today; my prayers aren’t even going high enough. Oh Father, I’m struggling.” You see, he contradicts the Word of God by declaring himself a struggler, not conscious that the Bible says those who have entered into God’s rest have ceased from their struggles (Hebrews 4:10). He interprets his life through his own senses, and God‘s Word has nothing to do with your senses.

Being born again, you’re not of the flesh; “…they that are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:8). You’re to walk by the Spirit, not by your feelings. Romans 8:13 says “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” This isn’t talking about physical death; it’s talking about spiritual death. That means you’ll be cut off from God; you’ll find yourself struggling. But if you walk in God’s light, in His Word, you’ll live, rule and reign as a king.

PRAYER:

Dear Father, I thank you for enlightening me through your Word, to walk on the path of life. Your Word is light and glory; as I meditate and live by the Word, I am transformed into the glorious image that I behold therein. There’s no darkness in me; I enjoy a sweet and rich fellowship with the Word and your Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
