This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:5-7
“Shame, like mold, grows in the dark.” Mold is gross, if we find it on food we throw it out with the trash because it is trash! Such is shame; it’s trash talk from the enemy. Meant to keep you frozen in the dark, hiding, pretending, posing and ultimately robbing you of the abundant life and purpose God intended for you to live!
Jesus does not speak shame, He speaks of repentance and forgiveness of sin in order to LIVE an abundant life, eternal life, of which He died and conquered death to provide as a free gift to all who would believe in Him!! Mistakes are not the end, God is all about making all things new (mold free)! You are not the exception!!
