Light in the Darkness

How do we live holy, while in the company of the lost

April 25, 2018 • Brian Motte • Ezekiel 33, Mark 2:15-17, Romans 10:13-15, Matthew 28:19-20, Romans 1:16-17

OVERVIEW: Name the people you know (family member, friend, acquaintance, co-worker, etc…) who do not know Jesus as their savior? What are you doing about that? When we come to know Christ we naturally pull away from sin, from those who do sin and from environments where sin reigns. But this poses a problem because Jesus teaches us to be the salt and light of the world. Jesus tells us that he came for those who are sick. So how do we manage our lives when it comes to being the light of the world without being having our own fire extinguished by sin? QUESTIONS: Name the people you know (family member, friend, acquaintance, co-worker, etc…) who do not know Jesus as their savior? When you’re with the people on your list, do you struggle with falling into sin? How might you change this? If you don’t have anyone on your list, then do you think you are fulfilling the great commission? Explain why or why not. Do you think just hanging out with non-Christians makes you salt and light in their lives? Why or why not? What are you personally doing in the the lives of the people on your list, or if you don’t have a list, in the lives of the unsaved in Fenton, Linden, Byron, etc to introduce them to Jesus? CHALLENGE: Being Salt and Light is an intentional process. This week, pray over the people on your list. If you don’t have one, ask God to give you eyes to see people in your life who need Jesus and then add them to your list. Before you spend time with any of the people you listed, spend time praying about and brainstorming how you will sow seeds of truth in their lives. Then go and actually do it!

The Test: Testimony

July 14, 2019 • Wes Morris

The Bible tells us to test ourselves to see if we are in the faith. Why should we test ourselves? To ensure we are not frauds and that we are truly in Christ. By doing this we can know that we are real Christians. Spend a few minutes with Pastor Wes as he shares from the Bible how we should test ourselves to make sure that we know that Jesus is our Savior. We will look at the following verses: 2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 1 JOHN 5:10-13 1 JOHN 4:14 1 JOHN 4:13 EPHESIANS 1:13 1 JOHN 4:17-18 ACTS 24:24-25
