Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 50 You are light in the Lord

We all need light to walk in, and Spiritual light is critical to be able to walk in the Spirit. What is spiritual light? How do we get it? What should we expect if we have light to walk in? Jesus said that He was the light of the world. He also said that we are the light of the world. Paul told us that we are light in the Lord. We are commanded to walk in the light as He is in the light. As we walk in the light as He is in the light we will have fellowship with one another, and we are cleansed from our sin.

• Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12)
o Light is in the person of God
o We come into the light in His life (union) (John 1:4)
• Light is not simply intellectual understanding
o Light requires faith (commitment to Christ as Lord) (John 12:35,36)
o Light requires obedience to Christ as Lord (John 3:19,20)
o Light requires continuous walking in the light that He gives (I John 1:7)
• We become light in a proper relationship with Christ (Eph. 5:8)
• Light is costly (Rev. 3:18)
o Light comes with a “good eye” (Luke 11:33-36)
o Walking in the light means no hidden issues
o Humility, nothing to hide, an honest heart looking to the Lord to walk in truth
• Our calling is to shine as light in a world of darkness (Matt. 5:14, I Peter 2:9)
o Walking in the light results in an expression of Christ
o Walking in the light will expose sin (darkness) around us. (Eph. 5:13)
o Walking in the light will bring conflict (2 Cor. 11:14)
o We stand in victory as we abide in Christ (light) in the darkness
• The end of all things is God as the only light in the New Jerusalem
