|If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by 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, his Son, purifies us from all sin. |
|If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 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. |
|If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. |
|1 John 1:6-7 |

LIGHT- Intellectually, light is truth, and darkness is ignorance or error. Morally, light is purity; darkness, impurity. Light is also used to symbolize righteousness and holiness; light is the agent that reveals and guides in truth (Ps. 119:105).
Right living - and not merely right thinking - is the hallmark of the person who has "fellowship" with God (v 6.)
