Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:5

1:5 And this is the sum of the message which we have heard of him - The Son of God. That God is light - The light of wisdom, love, holiness, glory. What light is to the natural eye, that God is to the spiritual eye. And in him is no darkness at all - No contrary principle. He is pure, unmixed light.

 

People's Bible Notes for 1 John 1:5

1Jo 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him. The message heard from Christ, now declared, is that God is light. The source whence all light, whether it be physical, or moral, or spiritual, comes; the Enlightener of the universe. The term denotes luminous clearness, the free and benevolent source from whence flow light, intelligence, purity and blessing, absolutely free from alien intermixture, since in him there is no darkness at all. Light represents truth, knowledge and holiness. Darkness represents ignorance, error, falsehood and sin.

God is the only one we should worship. John 3 16 says God so love the world that he gave himself to be crucify because of Me and you sins.

We all should believe that God is the light, and we should not be in the dark.

 

WGF's comment on 2011-03-24 08:48:53:

God is light and when we follow after righteous then we must reflect the light. Oh that we as his children dearly beloved would purge our lives of the deeds of darkness since in Him is no darkness at all. Let the glorious church arise and shine for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
