“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5
What is the “Message” – This is the message – ‘God is light’ – This means we need to bring a message that brightens peoples lives. Light gives color,m guidance, warmth, life. We can see & be seen. This means God is positive, not negative, not dark.
In fact, in God, there is no darkness at all, no negativity, no unbelief, doubt or cynicism… but rather He is ‘LIGHT’.
We heard this from Jesus. When people think they are ‘hearing’ from God & they bring fear & despair they are wrong. They purpose of Johns statement is so we can tell what message is from God & what is not. We are to ‘declare’ that God gives hope, faith & love. This is the message!
