One of the most recognizable verses from the Bible is central to Sunday’s gospel. “For God so loved the world that God gave the only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life” (John 3.16). After this hope-filled declaration, the gospel contrasts light and darkness. The song helps us remember that the journey from darkness to light is not confined to a single moment but rather is an ongoing conversion. Christ, the light of the world, continually calls us into that light.
Key Lyrics: I hear a voice and he calls me redeemed / When others say I’ll never be enough / And greater is the One living inside of me / Then he who is living in the world
Questions: Name a few moments when you witness hope for a world that God dearly loves. Where or in whom do you see Christ’s light? What do you see with the light of Jesus’ love and teaching? What do you see as the purpose in your life?
