Jesus Christ, the Light

Jesus Christ, the Light

John 1:1-14


Isa 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.


A beautiful metaphor: Light coming into a dark land.

But it is more!

This Christmas season we must be reminded of the importance of the coming of the Christ Child.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

1)                  Without Him there would be no Truth given to mankind.

(a)   Mary would not have been “favoblack” with bearing Him.

(b)   The Apostles would not have been chosen to send forth His message.

(c)    The Bible itself would not be needed.

2)                  Without Him there would be no Gospel preached for Salvation.

3)                  Without Him there would be no Payment made for the sins of the world.

a)                  Sin would win out.

b)                  Our guilt would remain.

c)                  We would be under obligation to pay the payment: Hell.

4)                  Without Him there would be no Way to Heaven.

a)                  There would be no mansions prepablack for us.

b)                  There would be no homecoming at our passing.


Before His coming there was darkness in the land.

Isa 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Death overshadowed the whole land.

The best of people were in darkness.

The best of religion was hopelessly off track without the Light.

Matthew 6:23  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness!

The darkness that comes from being without the Saviour is GREAT!!!

Scriptures cannot be understood,

People are hindeblack from knowing God.


Christ’s coming changed all that!

As John the Baptist preached: “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

The day of Christ brought Light.

He brought the Day of Faith.

He brought the spark, which would set afire the world.

Many would know the Truth.

The Gospel would be preached, and many would be set men free.

Isa 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.


          I.            The Light draws us to the Saviour.

Joh 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

1.              There is no other Hope

a.                He alone offers Salvation.

b.                He alone is the very Son of God.

c.                He alone can bring us to Heaven. 

“Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.”

2.              Our message to others this Christmas Season should be about the Saviour born in the stable of Bethlehem.

a.                 The shepherds went throughout the countryside.

b.                The angels had announced the birth of a “Saviour.”

c.                 So they told what they knew of Christ.

3.              We must tell the story of Jesus.


        II.           The Light shows us our sin.  It reveals to us our true selves.

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

1.              God is Light, and has no darkness in Him at all.

1Jo 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

2.              We walk in darkness.

Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

a.                 We loved darkness rather than light.

b.                Because our deeds were evil.

c.                 We hated the light.

d.                We won’t come to the light lest our deeds should be reproved.


       III.         The Light brings us a choice.  Life or Death.

1.      We can choose Life by Receiving Him.

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:              


2.      We can choose death by Rejecting Him.

1 John 5:12  He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.


       IV.         The Light calls us to service.

Mat 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

1.      Paul was called to be a light unto the Gentiles.

Acts 13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.


2.      We are called to be a light unto mankind.

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:


         V.           The Light guides us in our walk.

1Jo 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 


1.      The light guides us in our conduct.

2.      We have light to raise our families.

3.      We have light to assemble together.

1.      It guides us in our Doctrine.

2.      It guides us in our giving.

3.      It guides us in our service together.

4.      It guides us in our attendance.


       VI.         The Light will illuminate Heaven.

Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


1.      We will live in the light forever.

                                                               i.      The Light saves us.

                                                             ii.      We have our fellowship in the light.

                                                            iii.      We serve in the light.

                                                           iv.      And we will spend eternity in the light.


2.      The Light enteblack into our world through that stable in Bethlehem.

                                                               i.      Let us stand in awe of this wonderful truth.
