God Is Light, So Walk In The Light

5 And this is the message which we have heard from him and declare to you, That God is light, and with him there is no darkness. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie and observe not the truth; 7 but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
