The people who walked in darkness
Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.
Isaiah 9:2 (NKJV)

III. Lectionary Reflections

7. I Went, I Washed, and Now I Can See

In today's Gospel, Jesus, the Light of the World, brings light to a man born blind. If you are prepared to accept it, you are the man born blind, for all of us were born blind and in darkness. It was our baptism and the faith it gave that rendered us able to see and to come gradually more fully into the light. ...

8. Blind Faith Makes the Invisible Shine

John draws all - whether disciple or reader - into the text's theme of blindness and sight through a final ironic move in John 9:39-40, "Jesus said, 'For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see… and those who see… will become blind.' Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, 'What? Are we blind too?'" ...

9. Born Blind

Too often we Christians are like the Pharisees of old. We look at people, find something in their life that isn't quite perfect, and make a note of how much they "need God." What we're really saying is, "Look at how messed up this person is, you know it's because they've turned away from God." ...

IV. Featured: Jesus - The Light of The World

What would the world be like without the sun? -- Cold, dark and dead, wandering aimlessly about the universe with no hope of ever having life. That's what people are like without Jesus! As the Light of the world, Jesus is the light of life. ...

11. How to Walk in the Light as God is in the Light

If we are to walk in the Light as He is in the Light, we need to ask an important question. How is He in the Light? We need to know this because we are to walk in the Light in the same way as He is in the Light. ...

12. Jesus, the Light of the World (Hymn)

13. The Light Of The World

The light of the Gospel blesses us in so many ways. Christians who walk in it can help others by sharing the knowledge they have concerning life, death, sin, salvation, God, the devil, heaven and hell. For these are the issues that plague man on a wide scale and for which they are striving to find adequate answers. ...

V. General Weekly Feature: Marriage

14. Family Special: Marriage Was Meant To Be 'Very Good'

Love in marriage is the culmination and crowning point of God's creation. ...

15. Family Special: Components of a Good Marriage

Research now verifies that the healthiest marriage are those where a proper "bonding" has occurred between a husband and wife. Bonding refers to the emotional covenant that links a man and woman together for life and makes them intensely valuable to one another. ...
