God Comes to Bring Light

Passage: Isaiah 9:2-5

Speaker: Pastor Greg Olson

Sermon Notes

Light is central to life.

  • We need light to see, to walk, to do our work.
  • We need the light of the sun to live.
  • Plants need light to grow.

Darkness in the scripture refers to two things:

  1. Evil and suffering in the world
    a. Examples:  crime, war, etc.
  2. Ignorance
    a. Not doing anything about the evil and suffering in the world


  • Shows the WAY
  • Brings TRUTH
  • Brings LIFE

When we are close to Jesus we see his light, and his light shines through us.

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (NRSV)
