1 John 1:5-7, NLT This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
1 John 2:9-11, NCV Anyone who says, “I am in the light,” but hates a brother or sister, is still in the darkness.
