Don’t take sin lightly

This is the message which we have heard

and announce to you, that God is light,

and in him is no darkness at all.

If we say that we have fellowship with

him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and

don’t tell the truth. 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. If we say that we have no

sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is

not in us. If we confess our sins, he is

faithful and righteous to forgive us the

sins, and to cleanse us from all

unrighteousness. If we say that we

haven’t sinned, we make him a liar, and

his word is not in us

My little children, I write these things to

you so that you may not sin. If anyone

sins, we have a Counselor with the

Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. And

he is the atoning sacrifice for our sins,

and not for ours only, but also for the

whole world.

-John the apostle of Christ

  1. I have always liked this scripture. I also like that John points out that He cleanses us from All sin when we confess, not just the sin and uncleanness that we are aware of!
