He explains that walking in the light involves openness and fellowship with God, characterized by the continual confession and repentance of sins. The importance of humility and reliance on God is stressed, with John 15:5 and Ephesians 2:10 cited to illustrate the necessity of abiding in Christ for fruitful living.
