Sermon Recap for Dec 12
Good morning! Here is Sunday morning’s sermon. Sunday night was a bit less structured than it normally is…so it’s not here.
Sermon: John 1:1-5 (audio here)
Doug Hibbard / General
John 1:1–5 NASB95
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
The  darkness   around  us
The  darkness   before  us
The  darkness   beneath  us
The  darkness   within  us
The  Light   above  us
The  Light    around  us
The  Light   beside  us
The  Light   dwelling  in us
Do I have the Light of Christ?
Am I sharing the Light of Christ?
Am I blocking the Light of Christ?
Aggressive or Passive?
Darkness cannot understand the Light. It cannot defeat, seize it, take over it. Light always wins.
