What's happening this Sunday?
The goal of this series is to let Jesus speak for himself. We will go through the seven "I AM" statements given by him in the Gospel of John.
I AM: The Light of the World
PASTOR Tony REA - APRIL 5, 2020
After Jesus said this, He went on ahead going up to Jerusalem. As He approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it.’”
Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as Jesus had told them. As they were untying the colt, it's owners asked, “Why are you untying the colt?”
They replied, “The Lord needs it.”
They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. As He went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. When He came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd began to joyfully praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen.
“Hosanna to the son of David!” they said. “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest!”
Now some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth. If they keep quiet, the stones would cry out."
I am the bread of life.
I am the light of the world.
I am the gate.
I am the good shepherd.
I am the resurrection and the life.
I am the way, the truth, and the life.
I am the vine.
John 1: 1-5 KJV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” Jesus said, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.”
Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness
…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, pure, lovely, admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things.
While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 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. In the same way, let your light shine before others…
