Grant Nelson - 07-09-2023 // The Light of the World
Imagine living in a world without light. Light is used in so many different ways within our world making life without light nearly impossible to navigate. We use light for communication; think traffic lights, airport landing strips, or the warning lights on the dashboard to alert us to issues with our vehicles. Light is used to reveal or highlight defects, such as inspecting dents in a car. Imagine a surgeon operating without the proper surgical lighting. And of course, light helps us to see in dark places, such as the headlights used to illumine the roadways at night, or flashlights or candles in a room without power.
Scripture speaks of another light, the True Light which, "coming into the world enlightens everyone" (John 1:9 LSB). If life without physical life is nearly impossible, life without the Light of the world is holds eternal consequences.
Join us for today's lesson as we examine what the Scripture has to say about Jesus Christ as the Light of the world and the implications for us.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. We pray you will be blessed and encouraged through the teaching of God's Holy Word.
