Good Friday Service
29 March 2013, 8:00pm
"God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5).
Darkness is the universal symbol and condition of sin and death;
light the symbol and expression of life. Light and life go together.
It is the product of salvation.
"Yahweh is my light and my salvation" (Psalm 27:1).
"Light," figuratively used, has to do preeminently with spiritual life, including also the illumination that floods all the faculties of the soul: intellect, conscience, reason, will.
Jesus is the Light of the world. He is the 'true light that gives light to every man.' (John 1: 9).
What does this mean? In our modern world we are constantly flooded with myriads of lights. We take light for granted – that is until we are plunged into pitch darkness. Do we know what darkness is?
On this Good Friday, let’s reflect on Jesus - the Light of the world and more specifically, Jesus - the Light of Life!
- How is Jesus a Light to the world or even a light to my life?
- What if Jesus had never come – what would the world be like?
