Fellowship in the Light
Today, Christians throughout the world celebrate the birth of Jesus. He is the light of the world and He calls His people to walk in the light, to be cleansed from our sins by His blood, and to enjoy fellowship with one another. There is no fellowship to compare to that of those who walk in the light. May you walk in the light today and always.
Merry Christmas to all.
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 cleanses us from all sin. If we say 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. 1 John 1:7-9
