VISION & VALUES II

VISION & VALUES II 2017

JOHN 1:1-9

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

2 He was with God in the beginning. 

3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 

4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 

5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 

7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 

8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

 

MATT 5:14-16

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 

15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 

16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

NEW MISSION. NEW MANDATE. 

JOHN 5:35 John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.

MATTHEW 5:14-16 “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
