“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 ESV

WARNING. Stay away from the darkness. It wants to destroy you. Going towards darkness means you are moving away from God. There is no darkness in God. God is only light. Darkness is Satan’s territory. The dark lures you in through temptation. Lies. Things look good from the outside. But once you get in you will be destroyed. ———————————————— Drugs are a prime example. People partying. Laughing. Relating. Having fun. What can it hurt? It starts small. Until someone talks you into taking it to the next level. You can handle it. Until your body is hooked. And your brain needs the drug to function. To feel normal. Your days become consumed with the next fix. You lie, steal, and hide from the people closest to you. Each decision leading you farther into the darkness. Beware because darkness can be very subtle. What are you hiding? Sin is a direct connection with darkness. God wants you to stay in the light.
Hey God. Darkness is something I hear used sometimes. I know I need to learn to recognize it. Sometimes I do when my friends start messing with creepy things. But it is hard to tell them that I don't want take part. I am afraid they will make fun of me. Give me the strength and the courage to speak up. Knowing that doing so will save me from the enemy's plans.
