Walking in the Light – 1 John Part 2


  1. Doug

    Clement and Hans, thanks for your exposition.

    Re: 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

    This verse reveals the connection between obedience and justification. How does our obedience connect to our justification? Faith alone saves us by Christ and He is the only basis of our justification, but our obedience demonstrates the existence of that faith. This is why James 2:17 says what it does. True faith is that which the Holy Spirit works with to create in us fruits, fruits which are not natural to us. Not perfected but directed. We are chosen and changed. We are driven in this as written in 2 Thes 1:11 and Eph 2:10 and many more.
