Topic: Eternal Perspectives 3: The Light of Life
” Break, Eat, Share”
?Imagine a world in darkness!
Well spiritually speaking that it how it was after sin entered the world and death
came by sin. Darkness which is separation from God, sin, and ignorance about God,
man, and the purpose and meaning of life prevailed.
?Jesus Christ (the Word) was at work with humanity, through devout men, prophets,
priests and kings. However, about 2000 years ago He came from eternity into this world
and lived among us for 331/2 years. Now through his sacricificial life and death everyone
who is born again has His indwelling power to not just have access to the Light of life but
be lights; those through whom He shines in a dark, hurting and needy world.
?We are lights in Him and our love and obedience to God causes men to see His good
works, embrace and accept His life and glorify our Father in Heaven. The reverse is true.
When we do not love, trust and obey him we greatly multiply darkness
(sin, ignorance, evil death ). This has a bad ripple effect.
?Children of Light,
Scripture in Focus
?Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 8:12 KJV
?For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light: Ephesians 5:8 KJV
?But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the
light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:23 KJV
?Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16 KJV
Without Christ who is the Light of life I walk in spiritual darkness and can be used
to multiply evil and death around me. I can miss the purpose for which I was created.
Am I light or darkness?
