“God’s Will for All of His Children”      TEXT:  JOHN 1:1-5

Introduction: Proverbs 11:30-31

>If we have God’s righteousness in us, then we should be a source of life to others

1. Bread is a source of life     (John 6:28-40; Job 23:12; Jeremiah 15:16)

3. Light is a source of life

-God’s Word is a light for us to benefit from      (Psalm 119:105)

Jesus is the Light of the world      (John 8:12; 9:1-7)

-Jesus said His followers are light to the world      (Matthew 5:13-16)

>We cannot be a winner of souls if we are not a witness to souls

I. We need to begin with giving the Word to the world      John 1:1-2

  1. The Word that is eternal—“In the beginning”
  2. The Word that is from God—“was with God”
  3. The Word that is God—“the Word was God”
  4. The Word that is powerful to give life—He created all things by His Word (Hebrews 11:3; 1:3; 4:12)

II. We need to introduce mankind to their Creator God     John 1:3

  1. The Saviour is the Creator of all things (Colossians 1:15-17)
  2. The Saviour is their Creator
  3. The Saviour is also the Judge of His creation (Romans 14:7-12; II Cor. 5:5-10)

III. We need to shine the light in the darkness of this world     John 1:4-5

  1. Light gives life
  2. Light illuminates what is real to be seen
  3. Light makes truth clear
