Light of the World

It’s CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2019 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:


It’s PSALM-O-RAMA 2019 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)

God’s Fireworks

You won’t find the word “fireworks” in most Bible dictionaries. But I believe that Jesus had plenty to say about the subject.

A few examples:

You are THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. (Matthew 5:14)

GET FIRED UP — don’t hide it from the world. (Matthew 5:15)

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE — so that others can see God working through you and praise Him. (Matthew 5:16)

Salt and Light

GUWG-Salt-Light-3We continue our 40-day journey deeeeep into the  of Jesus.

We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.

Yesterday, we concluded our deeeeep dive into the Beatitudes. Today, Jesus moves right into how we’re supposed to live in this dying, dark world.

Here’s what he said:

Jesus on Light

light3We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.

Today’s topic: LIGHT. Jesus described quite the contrast:

Don’t Stumble in the Dark

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105

This world can be a very dark place. Let God light the way.

Spend some quality time with your Bible today. Quiet your heart so the Holy Spirit can speak to you. Read a passage over and over until it sinks in. Use your imagination. Interact with it. Meditate on it. Memorize it. Then get out of your chair and apply it. Live it. The world needs God’s light now more than ever.
