Sermon Series: Patterns of Light | Advent 2017
Sermon Title: The Coming of Light
Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:3-4; Isaiah 9:2; John 1:1-14; 2 Corinthians 4:6
According to the Bible, God’s first act of creation was light bursting forth in the darkness. And when God separated light from darkness, this wasn’t just a way of describing what happened in the physical world. It also said something about the cosmic struggle between good and evil—a central motif in the New Testament. In The Coming of Light (1 of 4), Pastor David invites us to see the advent of Jesus as the dawning of new creation, where the life of Christ becomes a light to all humanity.
