Sunday Scripture

This morning I preached a sermon titled “Light & Dark”. Here are my highlights:

  • I’m not a big fan of obeying rules on this fantastic journey.
  • When I think of rules I think of religion.
  • Jesus didn’t walk this Earth 2,000 years ago to start a new religion.
  • I am not a religious man.
  • I am a born-again Evangelical Christian.
  • I am a child of the most high God.
  • I’m not on this journey to follow a set of rules.
  • I’m on this journey to have a relationship with Jesus Christ – my Lord and Savior.
  • Religion kills. Jesus saves.
  • From the day of His resurrection – until the day of His Ascension into Heaven – a total of 40 days – Jesus was busy.
  • He was seen in His restored body by thousands.
  • He walked. He talked. He healed. He preached. He loved.
  • Once James saw Him – he became a believer. He was finally convinced that Jesus was surely the Messiah and Son of God.
  • James gave his entire life to God.
  • He was a Disciple. He was a leader in the New Testament Church. He preached. He became a Pastor. He was an Apostle.
  • God is light. There is no darkness in God at all.
  • We walk together with God. We have the light. We are of the light. We walk in the light.
  • I don’t wish to live in spiritual darkness ever again.
  • Be killing sin, or sin be killing you.
  • How do you kill sin ?  By shining light on it. By exposing it.
  • God’s light replaces Satan’s darkness.

Read Matthew 7:21-23, 22:37-40; Galatians 5:13-14; James 1:12-18; 1 John 1:5-2:2, 2:7-11
