How to find life in the light Verse: John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God... Discussion Questions: 1.

John 1:6-8 Christmas Reflection Summary: Jesus said He is the “Light of the World” (John 8:12). Part of what we celebrate at Christmas is that Jesus, the Light of the World, has come to this dark world of sin to save us. When Jesus first came, John the Baptist was called to tell people that the Light had come. Let’s think about John’s job, and what it means for us: Outline: 1. The sending of the witness 2. The role of the witness 3. The goal of the witness Verse: John 3:30 “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Discussion Questions: 1. Why do you think God chooses to use human messengers to testify to the Gospel of Jesus? 2. How did God use John the Baptist? What does that mean for you and me? How is our calling the same or different from John’s? 3. How can this passage in John 1 help you cherish Jesus more this Christmas?
