SERMON: Responses to Jesus, the Light of the World! (John 1:1-13)

light of the worldIf someone is dying of thirst, how precious even a drop of water would be. For one who is starving, how welcome even a stale piece of bread would be. How much more appealing would the gift of abundant life offered by Jesus Christ (John 10:10) be to one who is merely existing – who has no purpose in life! How much more appealing would this gift of eternal life (John 3:16) be to one who is gripped in the deathly throes of sin! Surely the response to this light of life would be a unanimous acceptance?! But no, dear friend, that is not the case.

In this sermon, I unpack the two responses to the Saviour; the two camps that exist viz. Those that reject Him and those that receive Him.

Listen along (by clicking player below) as we consider this question, and the various opinions held concerning the Christ (I preached this sermon at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 21st February 2016). God bless you!




Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.
