Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:7


1:7 But if we walk in the light - In all holiness. As God is (a deeper word than walk, and more worthy of God) in the light, then we may truly say, we have fellowship one with another - We who have seen, and you who have not seen, do alike enjoy that fellowship with God. The imitation of God being the only sure proof of our having fellowship with him. And the blood of Jesus Christ his Son - With the grace purchased thereby. Cleanseth us from all sin - Both original and actual, taking away all the guilt and all the power.

    Please cleanse and renew me, O Lord.

    I believe that the Jesus most people worship in America is as Paul stated to the Corinthians "another Jesus." who is in reality a Deist, a racist, a sexist and a leader of the cause against antisemitism. A political and economical strategist. His kingdom is a corpratocracy. He conquerors the world by way of bloodshed. He is indeed an Antichrist, and is greed is his creed.

  • Julia Peterson
    v6:If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: Although I've read this many times, I always tried to justify my sins. Thank God for another chance. I choose Jesus , I have surrendered ALL! Hallelujah! Once we have given our lives to Christ sin has to go. It's either we love Jesus or we love our sin. Help us Lord.
