THE FIRST EPISTLE OF JOHN

CHAPTER 2
 

WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE STUDY

          Great to have you back once again to share some more Daily Bread! In the first chapter of Johnís first letter, John urges us, as we walk in the light, that we need to confess our sins continually, and allow the blood of Christ to cleanse us, bringing us out of darkness. Not only should we walk in the light, but we must walk in love, in the image of our Father. Love was a very important thing to John, as you can tell when you read his Gospel, because he refers to himself several times as the disciple that Jesus loved. Letís read on and see what Johnís message is about love.

WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE STUDY ON WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE MEANING WITH WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE

What does walk in the Light mean and how do we walk in the Light?

Ephesians 5:8
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

1 John 1:7
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.

          My little children, I write you these things, so that you wonít sin. And if any man does sin, Jesus Christ the righteous, defends us to the Father. He is the atoning sacrifice (see Feast Shadows - Day of Atonement) for our sins, and the sins of the entire world. And if we keep His commandments, weíre certain that we know Him (This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more Hebrews 10:16-17). Whoever says, I know Him, and doesnít keep His commandments, is a liar, and the TRUTH isnít in him. But the love of God is perfected in whoever keeps His Word, and by this we realize that we are in Him (we are of Him, created in His image, His children). Whoever says Jesus lives in him, should walk as Jesus walked.

          Brethren, this is nothing new that I write to you, but an old commandment that you had from the beginning. Now, John is talking about when Jesus said:

John 13:34-35
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

           But, there is a new commandment that I write to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is past and the true light now shines. Whoever claims to be in the light, and hates his brother, is really still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is no need for stumbling in him. But he that hates his brother is in darkness, he walks in darkness and doesnít know where heís going, because darkness has blinded his eyes.

WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE WARNING OF WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE CONCERNS AND WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE DANGERS

You might have noticed at the beginning of this chapter that John calls all the saints little children, but next he explains why he is writing to each, little children - either literally or babes in Christ, fathers - aged, and young men - those in the prime of life. John is repetitive in this explanation, and I've color coded the sentences that are addressed to each group in the same color so you can study it.

I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven, for His name's sake.

I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him that is from the beginning.

I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one.

I write to you, little children, because you have known the Father.

I have written to you, fathers, because you have known Him that is from the beginning.

I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the Word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the wicked one.
 

So, why is John repeating himself? Either he wants to emphasize his point(s), or he's saying I write this to you now, and I have written it previously in this letter ... As we all know, repetition is a very effective way of teaching.

          Love not the world, or the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Because all that is in the world, the desires of the flesh, and the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world ends, and the desires of it: but he that does the will of God lives for ever.

          What does this mean, love not the world. You may be wondering because that ever so popular Bible verse says,

John 3:16
 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

         Love not the world, is referring to the things that the world teaches. Donít love things that are ungodly, or any of the things that satan blinds people into believing are acceptable, and are not. It doesnít mean that you canít love the countryside or the ocean breeze or a partly cloudy 77į day.

WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE TRUTH OR WALK IN THE LIGHT BIBLE VERSE CONSEQUENCES

          Little children, time nears the end: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; so by this we realize that the end is near. They (the antichrists) went out from us , but they were not of us. They left us, but they were not part of us; for if they had been part of us, they would no doubt have stayed with us: but they went out, so theyíd be made obvious that they were not all part of us. In other words, they were once believers and have fallen away.

          But you have an anointing (spiritual calling) from the Holy One, and you know all things. (The Holy Spirit gives you instinct to discern who is a deceiver.) I havenít written to you because you donít know the TRUTH, but because you do know it, and there is no dishonesty in the TRUTH. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son, doesnít know the Father: he that acknowledges the Son knows the Father also.

          So let what youíve heard from the beginning remain in you, and you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. And the promise that He promised us is eternal life. Iíve written these things to you concerning those who deceive you. But the anointing which you have received of Him abides in you (which is the HOLY SPIRIT), and you donít need any man to teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is TRUTH, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in Him.

          And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at his coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that every one that does righteousness is born of Him.

          You can feel the love that John has for us, by the way he calls us little children, as Jesus called the Apostles. Letís sum up this part of his letter. Keep the Lordís commandments. Love one another. Donít love the world. And, there are many antichrists around, so abide with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, which are in you, and TRUTH and righteousness will abound.

          Be sure to come on back soon and weíll continue our study of this lovely letter from John, right here at Daily Bread.
