light of the world

February 8, 2011

February 6, 2011. Living Hope Church in St. Michael-Albertville, MN.  2 Peter 1:19-21  ::  The Word of God, and specifically what it has to say about Jesus Christ, is a God-sent gift of LIGHT in a world full of darkness and pain and uncertainty.  Jesus the HOPE-BRINGER.  Jesus, the “Light of the World.”

When it comes to what you believe about the Bible and what it has to say about Jesus, the LIGHT makes all the difference…

“And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:19-21)

The song we sing following the message is “Marvelous Light” by Charlie Hall, copyright 2005 songs (Admin. by EMI Christian Music Publishing) / sixsteps Music (Admin. by EMI Christian Music Publishing).

If you have questions (or challenges) after watching this message, please leave a comment below or shoot me an emailI’d love to talk with you about what a difference the LIGHT has made in my life.

Psalm 24:7 & Luke 10:42 >> Like David, and Mary, I'm in pursuit of my one thing. I'm the Pastor at St. Olaf Lutheran Church in Montgomery, IL. Pastor, teacher, writer, communicator, designer, and drummer. I definitely got the better deal in my marriage to Amy. And I couldn't be any more proud of my five amazing boys. Deeply grateful.

  1. Enjoyed visiting at your church via my computer. I have walked in that light for more than fifty years now. It is always good to hear the Word of God honored and lifted up to its earned place. It is always good to hear Jesus praised and others called to Him. Keep up the good work. A verse from an old hymn comes to mind. “I love to tell the story for those who know it best, keep hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.” Whether it is the first time you have heard about Jesus or the thousandth it is precious each time. Walking in light sure beats stumbling in darkness.

    • Paul – you are like a tall drink of water on a hot day, brother. Thanks for the steady encouragement. I appreciate your friendship. God bless!
