I Am Jesus series

I Am the Light of the World
Jesus, in the Gospel of John, makes statements that reveal who He is. This weekend we'll be learning as Jesus reveals "I am the light of the world."

I once discovered, in a very terrifying moment, that light changes everything. I was 70 feet underwater scuba diving on my first night dive. I was pretty freaked out at the whole nighttime thing and felt something brush across my leg. In one jerking motion, I dropped my light. I was encircled in total darkness. I began to swim in the direction of my dive buddy thinking I was slowly swimming towards the surface. I wasn't. I was headed down. At 100 feet, which becomes a very deep dive, I saw a ray of light. That ray of light may have saved my life. It sure did give me hope. The dive instructor spotted me and came to my rescue. He showed me my depth gauge at 100 feet deep. I was headed for great danger and didn't even know it.

Jesus said, I am the light. He is the source of hope in a dark world. He is the answer when we don't know what to do. I can't wait to dig in this Sunday to my favorite teaching subject: Jesus!

I love you and it is a privilege to serve as your pastor! I hope to see you this Sunday!
