The Light of the World
Sermon Slides – Click here
God is Light
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you:
God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
(1 John 1:5)
• God is the source of light (Genesis 1:3).
• The light of God is good (Genesis 1:4).
Jesus is the Light of the World
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”
• Jesus lights the way to God (John 1:9-13).
• Jesus lights the way to life (John 1:1-4).
Our Light Should Shine Before Men
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand,
and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
• Walking in Light (1 John 1:7-9)
The light of God shines through us
when we embrace Jesus
as the light of the world.
- I will read the Christmas story with my family.
- I will pause on Christmas Day to remember the birth of Christ.
