Sunday Sermon Outline: The Light of the World

"The Light of the World"
John 8:12
    John 10:10, “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” 
    John 8:12, "I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life."
I. The Light of the World
    "I am the light of the world."

    Exodus 3:13-14, "Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I shall say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you.' Now they may say to me, 'What is His name?' What shall I say to them?" And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'" 
II. The Purpose of Light

    Matthew 11:28, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” “Come to Me … and I will give you rest.”

    John 3:14-21, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15 that whoever believes may in Him have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. 18 He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."

    John 12:32-33, "’And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.’ 33 But He was saying this to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.” 
III. The Meaning of Light

    John 9:5, "While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." 
    Matthew 5:14‑16, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do men light a lamp, and put it under the peck-measure, but on the lampstand; and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
