Devotion on Relationship with God, 4th of July, Patriotism, Personal Spirituality, 1 John 1:5-7. 2 pages.

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 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 (1 John 1:5-7).

As the American patriots of old defended the country they loved, to the point of sacrificing their livelihoods, families, and even their own lives, so we as Christians are called to make a similar sacrifice. By walking in the light we are called to defend the Gospel – not just stand up for it, but to passionately spread the Good News to our neighbors over the fence and around the world.
