Far too often, there is a discrepancy between what we say we are (e.g. Christians) and how we act. In 1 John 1:5 and following, John says that this ought not to be so. Those who claim fellowship with the God who is light must walk in the light. Obviously, we don’t always succeed. But thankfully, even when we fail, the blood of Jesus cleanses us from our sin. Praise God that it is so.
