Jesus is the light of the nations. Today’s message was a short update on Gospel Odyssey, a week-long program that brings the gospel to the streets. We heard how different people responded to the gospel.
I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.
[F]or all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life!
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
[B]ut God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
