Notes**
Since living a life of purity is evidence of having fellowship with God, we who claim to have this fellowship should always check our own lives, making sure we "walk in the light" and not in "darkness". John uses the example of how we might live in the light or darkness by how we handle sin in our lives: those who doubt nor repent of their sins walk in darkness, while those who confess their sins walk in the light.
