The Light of the World

The world began with God calling light out of darkness. Generations after humanity plunged into the greater darkness of sin, God sent an even greater light to illuminate the hearts of mankind. Jesus is the revelation and embodiment of God’s heart towards his people—love, truth, sacrifice, pursuit. In the Gospel of John, we discover unique insights into both the humanity and divinity of Christ, accounts of his life that arrest our hearts and challenge our faith. Pray that the Holy Spirit would stir us towards growth as we study this profound exploration of faith and spiritual life.
