Kingdom Living Series: Living in the Light

Pastor Zach Prosser

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:14-16

Read Mark 4:21-22

I. The Purpose of the Light is to Shine

b. 1 Peter 2:9
c. 2 Corinthians 4:6 d. 2 Corinthians 3:18

  2. The Light Exposes what is Hidden

    a. Ephesians 5:13 b. John 3:20-21
    c. Matthew 4:16
