The Land of Shifting Shadows

"If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1:6-7

One of the challenges we face as a faithful Christian is coming into and walking in the absolute light of the truth. The darkness of the world constantly attempts to invade our lives. It is very easy to become a lukewarm Christian like the Laodiceans John wrote about in Revelation Chapter 3. The Laodiceans were neither hot nor cold but were lukewarm in their spiritual condition. They were not walking completely in the darkness of the world but were not walking in the fullness of light neither.

The Laodiceans had found their comfort zone in the Land of shifting shadows. This was a condition that made the Lord sick and He warned that if they stayed in this condition He would vomit them out of His mouth.

As todayís text says, we cannot practice the truth while walking in darkness, and to have fellowship we must walk in the Light. This means that we cannot fully practice the truth nor have close fellowship while walking in the Land of Shifting Shadows. This is a place where there are few absolutes and the truth is not clearly defined. It is a place where the Bible is not accepted as the infallible Word of God. A place where everyone does what they believe is right in their own eyes.

A place where you hear "donít judge me" and "I donít think it really matters." It is a place where people believe that god follows them, and where they see no need to seek God and follow Him.

Beloved, if we donít press into the Light of Godís truth and walk in it obediently, we will surely be enticed to find our comfort zone in the Land of Shifting Shadows. This would be tragic indeed, for it will quickly be consumed by the unapproachable Light of His Glory at His return. Let us find true fellowship with God and with each other in the Light of truth.
