Jesus the light creates clarity | Week of December 9th

John 3:19-21, And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.

From the sermon series: The light of the world

In John 3, Jesus and Nicodemus are speaking together about how to see and experience the kingdom of heaven.

Nicodemus was a Pharisee, so he knew all the rules of the Jewish faith and how to live a perfect life. However, when he goes to speak to Jesus, Jesus tells him that this isn’t what is important; following all the rules wouldn’t get Nicodemus or others into the kingdom of heaven. Only through faith in Christ, by being born again of water and Spirit, would people be able to see the kingdom of heaven. When we have Christ in our lives, we experience new life – new behaviors, new thoughts. Living with this new life, and being baptized in water and Spirit, we know the truth of Christ’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension, and we act according to that truth.
