The Message we declare

A Facebook devotion for Emmanuel Beach Mission

1 John 1:5 (NIV)
“This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all”

The quest for perfection is so real for many people, whether that is body image, emotional health, ability to perform or whatever else comes to mind. However, the gospel tells us that we can know the one who is perfect – it is not these things that we strive for that will show perfection, it is the light of God. If we walk with Him, we too can be purified from sin (v7) – we too can be pure!

What is the message that we declare? It is one that points to God and says something of His very nature and that all people can share in that too. We can know Christ and the power of his resurrection, live in purity and in fellowship with each other. We can have life – an abundant life. Fabulous!
