Fellowship of Brokenness
Ronnie Evans takes us through the opening to the Epistle of John. Too often, as Christians we walk embracing the comfort, the privacy, and the anonymity, of the dark. Unsurprisingly, we continuously stumble and fall – unsure of what lies beneath our feet. We hide from the light where everything is exposed and laid bare. In the light there is no denial of the truth of who we really are, but we also finally begin to see the path clearly, the path that leads to Glory and the presence of the Father. Amazingly, when we step into the light our sins are not only exposed, but the blood of Jesus cleanses us from those same sins. When we walk in the light, we gain a joyful fellowship with one another, a fellowship of brokenness, where we see each other as we are in Christ Jesus, with no arrogance, envy or superiority; and the solace we once found in the dark disappears.
