3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations


In verses 4-5, John says, "In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it."

Have you ever been driving on a two-lane highway at night and the car coming toward you doesn't dim their lights? It's annoying! You try to look away and blink your lights to high and low hoping they'll get the message. When your eyes are adjusted to darkness, the light seems blinding. I think that's how it is for many of us when we see the light of Christ. If you live in darkness, you want to look away from the light. It seems blinding ... and even painful.

Have you ever noticed than when Jesus was born, every announcement of his birth started with the words "Fear not..."? The bright Light of God overwhelms those living in Darkness! I think that's why God usually reveals His light little by little. He puts the "dimmers" on so we won't be blinded. If we receive the light God gives us, then He will give more. On the other hand, if we walk away from that light, we go deeper into the darkness.
