Walk in the light you have received. A single sentence flashed in my understanding as we took communion this morning. A brief flash of light reflected across my face as the Communion container was being opened and my thoughts went to 1John 1:5-7.
Walking in the light you have received, consider with me, 1John 1:1-10.
As you read these scriptures, think about the Body and Blood of Christ Jesus. Our taking of communion, and that through this gift, that we have been given the ability to look upon and handle, the Word of life.
Christ death and resurrection are revealed and manifested in us as we obey and remember what He has done.
That through His sacrifice on the Cross, Christ has given you and I, a clear path to the Father.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (John14:6)
Communion, to dwell upon what He has accomplished through His obedient sacrifice for you and I.
Walk in the light, for in Him is no darkness at all.
Jesus said, "Do this in remembrance of me." (Luke 22:19) (1 Corinthians 11:24-25)
Walk in the Light that God has revealed to you. Today, I have been led to think on the privilege of taking communion. The cost which was borne by Christ and freely given to me and all who desire to receive Him.
I pray that as He lights your path and your understanding that you also will take the time to think on those things which are pure and lovely and of good report.(Philippians 4:8)
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
For the life was manifested, and we have seen , and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto 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 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 no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
