|Today is Friday, and we start our Mighty Men's Meeting tonight at 5:30 with a steak dinner. It is going to be a great time for all and Bro. Mike Johnson will be speaking for us. We will be blessed I know. Today I want to share just two thoughts from John:|
1) HE IS THE LIGHT- John 1:4 "In him was life; and the life was the light of men." We find in John 1, there are several verses that talk about Jesus being the light of the world. In I John 1:5 we read: "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declared unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." And then several other verses are given that talk about Jesus being the light. Now John is being led of the Holy Spirit to write each word, and also using his experience being led by the Spirit. John knew from experience the darkness in his life without Jesus Christ, and the light that came to him because of Jesus Christ. He can say the Light of the World is Jesus! By revelation and by experience! Have we forgotten the darkness we once lived in and the darkness that the world now abides in? Jesus is the light of the World.... let Him shine!!
2) THE WORLD'S GREATEST ADVICE- In John 2:5, we read: "His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it." This is the greatest advice you will ever hear.... whatever Jesus asks you to do, do it! Wow! It came from Mary, the mother of Jesus. She had some wisdom that came from observing her Son. We too ought to follow this advice, not just hear it, but heed it.
Well, time to get going. Much to do today. Hope you have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
