What does eternity have in store for those who know Christ? God's presence will be the best part of eternity.
The 2nd "I Am" statement by the Lord Jesus in the Gospel of John brings us to this statement - "I am the light of the world." This leads us to a discussion of what is the world; what is light and what is darkness.
We can't have a relationship with someone if we are not honest.
When the Bible states that God is light, what does this mean? How we know God better through this description, and how do we apply it to our lives? How do you know if you're in the light? How do you know that you are not in darkness? This sermon seeks to understand better the Bible's use of describing God as light, and how because of Christ's cleansing blood we can now be in the light.
How do we begin to live in the light? What does it look like?
We can often fall into the trap of comparing our faith with others who might be on very different paths set out by God. Martin discusses steps to help anyone falling into a shadow to come out of it and into the light of the fullness of God.
The story of King Hezekiah’s healing is so important to the wonder of life with God that it is told twice (1 Kings 20 & Isaiah 38) and then referred to a third time (2 Chronicles 32:24). We’ll read the account in 1st Kings 20:1-11. In the middle of the story, Hezekiah prays to God. And within moments Hezekiah receives a revelation and understanding of what is to come. It’s not that every prayer is answered this way. But the story does make us wonder at this first act of thanksgiving and faith we call prayer. We’re practicing the presence of God. And so far we have journeyed with Jacob in confessing that the Lord is with us but we so often miss his presence. And we have renewed our wonder of creation’s proclamation of God’s handiwork as creator. With Hezekiah’s story we’ll be encouraged and challenged to renew our prayer lives as another way to be assured of God’s presence, even in our deepest trails and worries.
Sermon about how those who have responded in faith to Christ should now live their lives. Only by the good gift of God can Christians follow in obedience, please God by bearing good fruit, and ultimately receive the eternal inheritance.
