1. Realize God is light.
“This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all.” 1 John 1:5
2. Be honest about your sin.
“So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth.” 1 John 1:6
“If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.” 1 John 1:8
“If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.” 1 John 1:10
3. Enjoy true fellowship with God and others.
“But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7
4. Confess your sins to God and receive forgiveness.
“But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” 1 John 1:9
