“FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT"
“In Him (Jesus) was LIFE, and that LIFE was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:4-5 (NIV)
HOW DO WE SHOWCASE THE LIFE OF JESUS AND BE A LIGHT TO THE WORLD?
L – Let the LOVE OF GOD consume you
I – BE A POSITIVE INFLUENCE
F – STAY F.A.T.
E – ENTHUSIASTICALLY SHARE THE GOSPEL
Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. Daniel 12:3 (NLT)
MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION
My dear brothers and sisters, if someone among you wanders away from the truth and is brought back, you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back from wandering will save that person from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins. James 5:19-20 (NLT)
1. What are some meaningful and creative ways can you keep the “fire burning for Jesus” in your life?
2. How can you be a positive influence to those around you? For example: be encouraging, respectful, caring, and serving one another.
3. Are you F.A.T. (Faithful, Available, Teachable) when it comes to letting your light shine for Jesus and sharing your faith? How can you become more effective in the area of evangelism?
4. Are there areas of compromise in your life that needs to be addressed? If so, take the time to seek God, confess your sins and repent. God desires to forgive you and to set you free, so that you can be a light for Him!
