It’s Jesus’ final week on the planet.

Some Greeks came to the disciples and asked to see Jesus, prompting one of the most awesome scenes in the entire Bible.

Here’s what Jesus said:

Shine the Light

GUWG-Candle-2We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Here’s today’s rather illuminating selection:

He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand so that those who come in can see the light? For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”

“Consider carefully how you listen,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you — and even more. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”

(Mark 4:21-25, Luke 8:16-18)

Salt + Light

We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: The Sermon on the Mount. His radical words of love, joy and peace amazed his audience and turned the world on its head.

We started with the Beatitudes — eight essential aspects of Christian character and the blessings that flow from them. Today, Jesus moves right into how we’re supposed to live in this dying, dark world.

Here’s what he said:

Light of the World

It’s CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2017 here on GUWG where from now until December 25 we’re preparing our hearts for the arrival of the Savior of the World.

The birth of Jesus brought God’s LIGHT into this dark world. Here’s what the Bible says:

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:4-5)

Here’s what Jesus himself said:

PSALM-O-RAMA: No Fear

It’s PSALM-O-RAMA 2017 here on GUWG where all week long we’re taking a deep dive into the Psalms.

Here’s an anti-anxiety Psalm shared by one of our visitors:

The Lord is my light
and my salvation–
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life–
of whom shall I be afraid?
(Psalm 27:1)
