Series review:
-God created light and it was good. Everything else from creation flows from that moment.
-Throughout the story of God light is a constant symbol of the presence and power of God.
-The prophecies foretold about the coming of Jesus, meaning Christmas is the dawning of light (Isaiah 9:2)
-This light brings joy and a calls us to respond
-We are not just to observe the light, but to walk in the light (1 John 1:7)
The question for today:
What do you do about all of this Christmas light?
-As they are listening, Jesus’ hearers would have known Light as symbolic of God Himself (2 Samuel 22:29, Psalm 18:28, Psalm 43:3).
-When Jesus proclaims “you are the light”, He commands His followers to be what He Himself claimed to be (John 8:12).
In response to the proclamation "you are the light", Jesus gives us only two choices:
1. Shine ( “it gives light”)
2. Cover your light (“put it under a bowl”)
-The implication is that, as believers, we have to actually work not to shine.
The greatest gift we can receive is His Light.
The greatest gift we can give is His Light.
