Lights On! Let it in and Live it out!

Our   church focus   this   year   speaks   of   the   LIGHT   that   when embraced will impact your life and the lives of others. For the next twelve months we are going to hear the phrase “Lights On! Let it in and Live it out!”  Our focus verse is John 1:4 which says, “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.” Jesus  is both  “Life”  and  “Light.”

Let in the Life of Jesus .  As Creator Jesus entered His creation to bring new life to those who would receive Him. Those who are spiritually dead in their sins need life and Jesus  is the source of that life. To know Jesus personally is to have eternal life and to let Him into every area of your life. When the life of God enters our lives, the LIGHT comes on and we become “children of light.”

Live out the Light of Jesus .  John tells us that there is a connection between life and the LIGHT. In a physical sense light is necessary for life. The same is true for spiritual life. Light is a perfect metaphor for Jesus. Jesus is the personification of goodness, beauty and truth. His perfect LIGHT opposes, exposes and remedies the spiritual darkness of sin! Martin Luther King Jr. said  “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Daily living out God’s LIGHT in your life will challenge how you love, speak, forgive, and witness.

Are you living out Jesus’  Life and Light?  Believers with their “Lights On!” radiate the love of Christ while living in a spiritually dark world. Romain Roland said, “If a man is to shed the light of the sun upon other men, he must first of all have it within himself.”It’s time to turn your  “Lights On!”

 Lighting the world with Jesus,

Pastor Ron Thomas
