The Light of the World

Passage: John 8:12
Service Type:

The Gospel of John was “written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:31) One of the ways that John chose to reveal Jesus’ identity to his readers is through the seven “I am” statements that Jesus makes throughout the book. Each of these statements reveals something about who Jesus is. The purpose of this sermon series is to magnify the greatness of God in Jesus by seeing Him for who He says He is, so that we and our hearers “may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:
Question 1
Light drives out darkness. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5) What are some ways that Jesus, the Light of the World, has expelled darkness from your life? Consider 1 John 1:7 for some ideas.
Question 2
Our lives are most fulfilled when we welcome the Light of the World into every part of our lives, but it can sometimes be challenging to do so in certain areas for one reason or another. Are there any areas in your life that you have resisted letting the Light into? Why do you think that is? What is one step you can make today to invite Jesus into that space?
Question 3
Considering how Jesus is the Light of the World (John 8:12) and has given sight both physical and spiritual to others (John 9), what are some specific ways that we, as children of light (John 12:36), can reflect His light in the lives we lead each day?
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.” John 8:12 NIV
