I Am Light: The Light of the World (part 3) I Am Light: The Light of the World (part 3) Ben Phillips I Am / Light; Evangelism; Transformation / Matthew 5:13–16; 1 Peter 2:9–10 We are continuing our study of being the light of the world. Christ came as the light of the world. In Christ, Christians have been transformed by Christ's blood and word into children of light in the kingdom of light. If we are children of light, then we must proclaim the Gospel to the world! Introduction Our Savior is the source of light and in Him we are transformed to be the light of the world. As those of light, we imitate God (Ephesians 5:1-2) and live so as to bring righteousness, goodness, and truth (Ephesians 5:8-9). But is not meant to just be lived—If we are the light of the world, then we have to speak forth the truth of the Gospel. The Light of the Gospel Perceived The devil is working to prevent the light from shining. 2 Corinthians 4:1-4 — Paul was presenting the Gospel but Satan was working to hide it. Jesus has brought life and light to us through the Gospel (2 Timothy 1:8-12). We were in darkness but God has changed us. Do not be ashamed of the Gospel. Trust God and walk in the light. The Light of Truth Proclaimed The truth draws to the light (John 3:8-21). Page 1. Exported from Logos Bible Software, 9:32 PM September 28, 2019. Speak truth to those in sin (Ephesians 5:8-14). Speak the truth of what God has done (1 Peter 2:9-10). Conclusion A child of light cannot say no to the preaching of the Gospel. Each of us need to be the light, speaking truth, in those places where we have the opportunity to so do. I might be the only one at work, on the sports team, in the college class, etc. who is living for Christ and can speak forth the word of Christ. Page 2.
