Sermon: “The Light has Come”
Theme: God has given us light so that we may dwell in joy and to walk in confidence.
Purpose: To call the congregation to appreciate the light and see themselves as those who bear the light to all times and places.
Scriptures: Isaiah 60:1-6 Arise, your light has come.
Matthew 2:1-12 The visit of the Magi
Which power do we tend to believe in: The force of a ruler like Herod that can bring death upon those who threaten him? Or the power of God shown in the life of a Messiah who promises peace upon all of the earth? What difference does it make that we worship the Messiah who was a refugee from his own land? What does God intend for us to do with the light that we have received from God? How do we shine that light when we see so much cruelty and violence in the world? What does it mean for us to “go home by another way?”
