“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)
To navigate through the end times, it’s critical we stay out of the darkness of the world and walk in God’s light, so we won’t stumble off track. Ephesians 5:8 explains, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”
As Ephesians 5:3-5 describes, walking in darkness involves participating in sexual immorality, any kind of impurity, greed, obscenity, foolish talk, crude joking, and more.
Instead, we’re to walk in the fruit of light, which consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth, and to find what pleases the Lord (Ephesians 5:9).
Walking in darkness means believers have wandered away from God's word and are backslidden in their relationship with Him. 1 John 1:6 explains, “If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.”
As Ephesians 5:15-16 warns, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not at unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil."
