Sermon Notes

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it

Finding Joy in the Darkness

  • God is with us. Jesus came to be WITH US—WORD became FLESH
  • Through the Holy Spirit
  • Through community—the love of others
  • The Hope of the Resurrection reminds us that whatever we are going through is not the final word.

For those of us going through hard times this year, hear this message of Christmas:

I have come to be with you, to assure you that you’re never alone no matter what
To walk with you through the good, the bad and the unknown
To give you strength and courage
And when it is time, to bring you home to be with me forever

For those of us who find ourselves in a time of peace

  • Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven.
  • Be a light of encouragement and compassion for someone else.
  • Proclaim the power of God through your words and deeds.
  • Don’t miss the opportunity to share with someone else what Christmas means to you in your life of faith.
