Podcast #43: Light of the World by Lauren Daigle & Luke 2

I love how this week’s song leads us to the Christmas story AND deep into God’s Word searching out details about the Light of the World, Jesus Christ.  Lauren Daigle’s “Light of the World”, includes lyrics we can relate to and that point us back to God’s Word.

Revelation-21-23-square

If you feel like you are walking in darkness, please know that the sunrise has visited us from on high to give you light and guide your feet into the way of peace.

On this week’s episode I discuss:

  • Our desire for the “next thing”
  • Giving yourself the margin to allow truth to sink in
  • Luke 2:13-14 where the multitude of angels appeared to the shepherds
  • Zachariah’s prophecy over John that includes details about Jesus in Luke 1:76-79
  • Matthew 4:16 describing the Light that has dawned (cross reference in Isaiah 9:2)
  • Jesus referring to Himself as the Light of the World in John 8:12

Podcast #32: How Can It Be by Lauren Daigle, John 8 and 1 John 2

If we truly take the time to process our own sinful nature and then pair that with a time of meditation on all that Christ is and has done for us, we too will proclaim, “How Can It Be?” like Lauren Daigle in this week’s song.

However, the conviction of our guilt should not lead us to a place of shame, but to repentance.
