Welcome to weekend worship with the Lighthouse Family!In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. (John 1:1-7 ESV)

Jesus: Light of the World
August 20-21, 2022
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great Light; those who dwelt in the land of intense darkness and the shadow of death, upon them has the Light shined. (Isaiah 9:2 Amplified Bible Classic Edition – AMPC)
Jesus Christ is the light of truth, the light of salvation, and the light that guides us. As His followers, we are to be reflectors of that light into the world.
Four simple truths for us to know and apply today about Jesus as the light:
I. Jesus is the Light of the world.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:1-3 ESV)
...for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9(for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. (Ephesians 5:8-10 ESV)
2. Jesus is the Light of Salvation.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:4-5 ESV)
I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. (John12:46 ESV)
I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins. (John 8:24 ESV)
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, (John 1:12 ESV)
3. Jesus is the Light that guides us.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life. (John 8:12 ESV)
4. We reflect the light of Christ to the world.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. (John 1:6-8)
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16 ESV)
And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, 25and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. 26They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. (Revelation 22:23-26 ESV)
Because relationship with one another is at the core of being a disciple of Christ, we invite you to find community and experience spiritual transformation through LCC’s groups, classes, events, and service opportunities.
