Part 2

Positive Values of Light

Light can help us to see things accurately.

But, too much light can be bad.

Warning about “Competing Lights”

Satan, Distractions, Temptations, Deception

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.”

- 2 Corinthians 11:14


Negative Values of Darkness

In the absence of light, we will naturally look for, or manufacture some kind of light.

a. They don’t know any better.

b. They DO know better, but think it’s in their best/self-interest to pretend they don’t know


c. Both A & B


AFRAID

SELFISH

DON’T WANT TO BE ACCOUNTABLE


Light Creates ORDER

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.”

-Genesis 1:1-5

Light EXPOSES Darkness

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light …11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light…”

-Ephesians 5:8-13

WALK in the Light

“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 BUT if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from ALL sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”

-1 John 1:5-10

Light GUIDES us

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

-Psalm 19:105

Matthew 5:14-16

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father [God] in heaven.”


Jesus is the Light of the World.

He called you, the light of the world.

Let His light shine through you.

Even the smallest light pierces the darkness, and that can change the world, one person at a time.
