By Pastor Glenn Pease An embarrassing situation marked the passing of a well known fire chief. None of the family has spoken to any member of his engine company since the funeral.

John 1: 1-5 Bringing Light Into the Darkness I am a person who enjoys words. When I study a passage of scripture I like to look up the origin of words and see what they mean in the original language. I like to put words together to convey my thoughts and often write them down in poetic form, so the first…

Everyone should know how valuable the light is because we all have experience with darkness. The reality of sin is all around us. Yet some people suppress it; ignore it; reject it. There are two ways any person can walk—a path of darkness or the path of light. Walk in the light!

WALKING IN God’s LIGHT today 1 John 1:5-7 INTRODUCTION On Monday, Gordon Brown said that we must, in an uncertain and unstable world, be the rock of stability upon which the British people can depend. This would have been an audacious statement at the best of times, but these are not the best of times.…

You are the salt of the earth ( Mt 5:14a ). You are the light of the world ( Mt 5:13a ). This is how Jesus describes Christians. It’s how he describes you, a follower of Christ. But what does it mean that you are salt? Many people try to explain this passage by examining the natural properties of salt.…

14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. 15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give…

Loving One Another Introduction Love for the brethren has been shown as proof of fellowship with God (1 John 2:7-11); then it has been presented as proof of sonship (1 John 3:10-14). In the earlier passage, love for the brethren is a matter of light or darkness; in the second it is a matter of life or…

The Golden Lamp-stand Have you ever been in the dark? – We all have, but I mean really dark. I remember going to the caves in Cheddar gorge. It was off season and we were the only ones – so they showed us a lighting display in the last cavern that they don’t normally show because of it takes too much…
The Savior's Sermon
Karl Schultz • First Evangelical Lutheran Church • Sermon • • 1,070 views • 17:40
God has given purpose to your life. Live as salt and light to this world. Stem the moral decay of society and shine the light of Christ on those living in darkness without him!
We live in a world of disgarce. Just look at Washington these days. However, we are called to shed the light of grace. It is the grace makes you the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Let's see how Jesus taught us to shed grace in this disgraceful world.
Sermon on the Mount
Lights shine bright... everywhere we go! As long as God is at work (which He is), as long as the Holy Spirit is moving (which he is), as long as the Church is alive (which she is)... lights will always shine bright. The question is are you contributing to darkness or light? We invite you to listen this morning as Pastor Chase brings God's Word to us in a practical way! (The video shown at the end was of color blind people viewing color for the first time through Enchroma Glasses. The illustration shows what it's like when we allow Christ to shine through our lives to others.)

Scripture 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. 106 I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to keep your righteous rules. We cannot confuse our modern day candle or candlestick with the lamp. Their shape was similar to a shell or saucer with a lip. Lamps of stone, metal, and shells…

How long does it take to build a solid trusting relationship with someone? Does it take a little amount of time or a lot of time?

”Again Jesus spoke to [the Jewish leaders], saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ So the Pharisees said to him, ‘You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.’ Jesus answered, ‘Even if I do bear witness…
GOSPEL OF JOHN: I WAS BLIND BUT NOW I SEE PART I
Big Idea Jesus seeks to bring those who are walking in the darkness of sin into his Kingdom buy the Light and power of the Gospel. The purpose of John using this story is to demonstrate the state of spiritual blindness. Jesus finds the blind man. The blind man in this text is not looking for Jesus. Distorted…

John is writing in retrospect by distinguishing an act that will take place later in his writings but had already been spoken of the other Gospels Matt & Luke. Waiting of the Lord Mary, Martha and Lazarus are all loved by Jesus (Family) He doesn’t love one person in the Christian family more less that…

We are familiar with the words of Isaiah, “He shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” (Isa. 9:6) In the Christmas story we are told that Jesus would be named Immanuel (Mt. 1:23). In other places He…
If Magi were so despised by the culture and condemned by the Scripture, why did Matthew place them at the presence of Christ, God’s Son? In fact, this is not the only scandalous story he told. Let's look at the provocative message of Matthew's Magi story.
