How do we navigate the darkness of the world around us?

What do I do with the darkness that is within me?

Who is Jesus?

What difference does He make in my life today?

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”

Jesus [John 8:12]


Jesus is not ONE among MANY lights of the world.

I am the light of the world.

  • Light REVEALS [Ephesians 5:8-13]
  • Light GUIDES [Psalm 119:105]
  • Light brings LIFE [John 1:1-5]

Only Jesus can dispel the DARKNESS & CHAOS in your life.

Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness

  • Living in DARKNESS vs. walking in the LIGHT

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.  Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.  But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.  This is why it is said: 'Wake up, sleeper,  rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.'”

Ephesians 5:8-14

Jesus is the light that PREVAILS over the DARKNESS of the world.

…but will have the light of life.”

  • Light of LIFE  vs.  Shadow of DEATH

"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."

Isaiah 9:2

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16
