In saying, We have fellowship one with another, he does not speak simply of men; but he sets God on one side, and us on the other. He has come to suffer instead of to punish. The connexion between this suffering and the remission of sins may be hard to trace; but in the absence of any theory defining that connexion we may recognize the harmony between this revelation of the infinite love of God and the deepest laws of human life. So far as sin is a matter of guilt before God, it is taken away even to the last relic of evil, and we walk with God in the light, having our conversation above the skies. One of the first evidences and signs of the coming of the Spirit of God—and His coming is the coming of the light in the heart—is a new discovery of the depth and reality of sin.

Blood’ cleanseth—We must beware of the great error of making this wonderful image of being washed and cleansed in the blood of Jesus a literality. The Christian"s walk should be in the light.

It was the most holy thing with which even the high priest himself had to do. This passage is remarkable; and from it we first learn, that the expiation of Christ, effected by his death, does then properly belong to us, when we, in uprightness of heart, do what is right and just for Christ is no redeemer except to those who turn from iniquity, and lead a new life.

The example ought not to be otherwise applied than according to this passage. sin. It may take time for that effectiveness to break through, and there may even be times of stumbling, but eventually that salvation must fully break through.

App-6. that our sins are, upon our faith, forgiven us on account of the death of Christ; and, that the Holy Spirit being given in consequence of that death, does, in the completeness of that work, so strengthen and energize our moral and spiritual powers that we are able to reject temptation and avoid sin; and just in the measure and fulness of that power in exercise is the entireness of our sanctification. Westcott (B. F.), The Historic Faith, 236.

We may have, and no doubt we will have, both sin and the sense of sin upon us—“if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us”—but we may walk in the light nevertheless, if we deal truly with our sin; and it is only as we do so that we enjoy Christian fellowship and are cleansed by the blood of Jesus. Sir Henry Havelock used to meet with his soldiers for prayer. It is all this and more. It was the most holy thing with which even the high priest himself had to do. However, we need continual cleansing from the defilement that sinful daily living brings because it hinders our fellowship with God (cf.

But no sooner is the stone turned and the wholesome light of day let upon the compressed and blinded community of creeping things, than all of them which enjoy the luxury of legs—and some of them have a good many—rush about wildly, butting each other and everything in their way, and end in a general stampede for underground retreats from the region poisoned by sunshine. through the Spirit purchased by his blood. When he bids us “walk in the light,” he means, as already said, that our whole life should be influenced thereby, our thoughts and acts, the outer as well as the inner man; our life is to be illuminated through that hallowing and transfiguring light which comes from God, and which illuminates us in Christ Jesus. ), The Spirit-Filled Life, 11.

W. Holmes, The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table, ch. We are justified by Christ; we are sanctified by the Spirit.

Dale, 79. Holiness denotes vitality of sympathy as between the soul and God. The preaching which laid hold of the outer man, detaching him from the world, and uniting him to his God, was also a preaching of solidarity and brotherliness. Some little time ago a tourist who was walking through the Lake District was overtaken at night by a heavy storm of wind and of rain, and soon got soaked to the skin. How natural was it for men to identify with light the good they felt at work in their hearts, and to mark by darkness the evil with which it had to strive! Blades of grass flattened down, colourless, matted together, as if they had been bleached and ironed; hideous crawling creatures, some of them coleopterous or horny-shelled—turtle-bugs, one wants to call them; some of them softer, but cunningly spread out and compressed like Lepine watches; black, glossy crickets, with their long filaments sticking out like the whips of four-horse stagecoaches; motionless, slug-like creatures, young larvæ, perhaps more horrible in their pulpy stillness than even in the infernal wriggle of maturity! When the end seemed very near, the Queen bent down over her husband and repeated this verse in his ear. There was a stain upon the heart: that stain has been removed by a powerful detergent, and now the heart is pretty much as it was in years gone by. Walking in the light.—Life is a walk. A metonymy is a figure of speech in which a writer uses the name of one thing for that of another associated with it or suggested by it. He also points out the manner of obtaining pardon, and the cause of our cleansing, even because Christ expiated our sins by his blood; but he affirms that all the godly are undoubtedly partakers of this cleansing. The essential part of every sin offering was the blood, because the blood is the life. But when God pardons there is another step involved, and another element enters into consideration. Adam Clarke Commentary. No feature in the growing saintliness of an earnest Christian is more marked than his desire to make continued use of the blood of the Lamb. In his little churches, where each person bore his neighbour’s burden, St. Paul’s spirit already saw the dawning of a new humanity, and in the Epistle to the Ephesians he has voiced this feeling with a thrill of exultation.

In that Divine vision life appears in the fullest proportions we can yet apprehend. Yet what is half done obtains no approval with God. He will not countenance any shuffling, any inferior expedients for completing the task allotted, simply with a view to getting through it. The statement of the writer to the Hebrews is strictly accurate,—“almost all things are by the law purged with blood” (Hebrews 9:22). Verse 1. When that divinely-bestowed power is complete, the sanctification is entire. Thus, fellowship with Christian brethren is dependant upon fellowship with the Father and Son (1 John 1:7). Without shedding of blood is no remission.1 [Note: W. J. 1. However, we need continual cleansing from the defilement that sinful daily living brings because it hinders our fellowship with God (cf. He, the representative of the Eternal Lord of Righteousness, must express in some way His abhorrence and His condemnation of human sin. We might have thought that it should come first. His blood (His effective sacrifice on our behalf) will cleanse us continually from all sin, known or unknown and we will be kept wholly clean in His sight. Through the blood-shedding of Christ we have remission of sins now, and are as truly forgiven as we shall be when the light of the glory of God falls on the resurrection face.

John uses the present continuous verb form to emphasize that living in the light keeps us in the fellowship where the blood of Jesus continuously makes us clean from sin. Every living creature would lose its brightness and activity; every plant would wither; all the material world would lose its charm. Another view is that John meant that we cannot enjoy fellowship with God if we neglect fellowship with other Christians. It spiritualizes the irresistible impulse which draws one man to another, and it raises the social connexion of human beings from the sphere of a convention to that of a moral obligation. In his little churches, where each person bore his neighbour’s burden, St. Paul’s spirit already saw the dawning of a new humanity, and in the Epistle to the Ephesians he has voiced this feeling with a thrill of exultation. Redeemed by one sacrifice for sins for ever, they share one life, for Christ is their life; one ambition, for His glory is their highest desire; one food, for His Word and His Table are their sustenance; one faith, for all their hope is built on His Blood and righteousness, not on their own; one task, for the evangelization of the world is the work which He has left His Church to do; one heart, for if one member suffers all the members, so far as membership is real and vital, and not merely mechanical or even ecclesiastical, suffer with it; one in hope, for all are, if things are right with them, “looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ”; and with one rule of life, freely giving what has been freely received. It is some kind of secrecy—which no doubt has its motive in sin—that is meant by darkness, and this gives us the key to walking in the light. But on the other hand the comforting thing about it is that if we are heavy laden with our sins, and are feeling aware of our guilt, we can come constantly to God’s light with a longing to be delivered, and cry to Him for forgiveness, then we can be certain sure of the cleansing that comes through the blood of Jesus. For the Apostle here addresses the faithful; as doubtless no man has ever been, nor ever will be, who can otherwise please God, since all are guilty before him; for however strong a desire there may be in us of acting rightly, we always go haltingly to God. ., pp60-61.
