But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
I once spent a long weekend at a huge log cabin in northern Michigan. It was a very remote site, surrounded by forest. The cabin stood about a hundred yards off the two-lane state route. There was a dirt road that led into the woods to a stocked fishing pond. I was there with my best friend and a few of his family.
One night Rick and I decided to take a peaceful walk along the dirt road toward the pond. The night was exceptionally dark, but we could see enough to stay on the road. However, we suddenly hit a section that was pitch black; not a shred of light! It was as though we had walked through a doorway into the most complete darkness I had ever experienced!
We lost track of each other quickly and became disoriented as to which way to go. I was lucky enough to turn toward the state route and caught the sight of headlights quickly passing the dirt road. I made sure not to turn at all and called out to Rick to follow my voice as I slowly, blindly walked in that direction.
In a few yards we had enough light to find each other and get back to the cabin.
We only had fellowship when there was enough light to find each other. Without such light, whether physical or spiritual, we cannot walk with anyone!
