“Livin’ Large is experiencing the new life we have in Christ. It is living the Christian life in the power of the Holy Spirit and it is practicing (Ephesians 4-6) our position (Ephesians 1-3).”
1 John 1:7
7 but if we live in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Living in the light means we live in God’s presence. We live with an attitude of seeking to please the Lord and we live centered on our relationship with Christ. Living in the light means that God is our audience and we do everything to please the Lord. The fruit of this lifestyle is that we experience fellowship and the assurance of spiritual cleansing. God forgives our sin entirely on the basis of Christ’s atoning sacrifice. Our awareness of that forgiveness and our appropriation of Christ’s cleansing are in proportion to our living in intimate fellowship with God. Living in the light reminds of Christ’s forgiveness and it empowers us to Christ-centered fellowship with other believers. That is Livin’ Large!
Take a moment to acknowledge to God that you are trusting in Christ alone for the forgiveness of your sins. Read over 1 John 1:5-9 and confess any sin that comes from the darkness rather than the light. Re-up on your commitment to follow Christ and live in union with Him. Ask God to fill you with His light and pray that Christ’s light might shine through you. Ask God to show you how the light of Christ in you might dispel the darkness around you. In Christ’s name keep on living in the light!
