I Am the Light | I Am Part 2
Message Summary: Do we know God or know about God? There is a difference. Knowing God unlocks wisdom and understanding to the life we live. We can know our God by reading His word in the Bible. We need to connect our lives to Jesus who is our source of strength. Light reveals what is true. It brings out the reality of what is hidden in darkness. Jesus came to reveal God’s mercy. Mercy is forgiveness and compassion rather than power and punishment. One of the ways God shows love is thorough His mercy toward us. God does not love us based on our actions. He loves us because we are his children. We can show the love of Jesus by showing mercy to others.
