Put on the armor of Light. To wear this bright, protective covering, you have to put aside deeds of darkness. You live in a world where darkness is prevalent all around you. You need My Light-armor to help you see things clearly—protecting you from being led astray by the worldliness that surrounds you.
I want you to walk in the Light with Me. Make every effort to live close to Me, aware of My loving Presence. Just as you put clothes on your body, you can also clothe yourself with Me. Such nearness to Me will help you make good decisions. Sometimes, though, you will make bad choices that lead you into sin. Do not despair when this happens. Because I am your Savior, I have made provision for all your sin. Moreover, the blood I shed on the cross cleanses you and keeps you walking in the Light.
If you confess your sins, I forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. I am faithful and just, and I delight in your nearness to Me.
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
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
Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
—1 John 1:9
