October 13, 2013 : BREAKTHROUGH TO FAITH

Dr.  Burnie R.  Burnside

 

John 8:12-30

 

It can be very dangerous to spend life in the darkness.  Yet, all around us, people are living in darkness.  They don’t know where they are going or the danger that they are in.

 

THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD IS JESUS (vv. 12-18).

 

There is nothing we need more in this world than light for our path.

 

There are always those who will challenge Jesus’ claims.

 

We must be constantly on guard not to be taken in by someone who claims to be what he is not.

 

BE CAREFUL NOT TO MISJUDGE JESUS (vv. 14-18).

 

First, if we do not have enough evidence, we should suspend judgment.

 

Second, we will misjudge Jesus if we look at Jesus superficially or with human understanding.

 

Third, we will misjudge Jesus if we do not know the Scriptures.

 

PIERCING THE IGNORANCE (vv. 19-27).

 

One reason for people’s ignorance is because their understanding is completely darkened (vv. 18-20).

 

Another principle reason for ignorance is pride (vv. 21-23).

 

If we do not discover who Jesus is, and place our trust in Him, our lives will end in eternal separation from God (v. 24).

 

THE BREAKTHROUGH (vv. 28-30).

 

The Cross makes a difference!!

 

The Cross of Christ changes lives.

 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

 

Jesus has penetrated our darkness.

 

Jesus illuminates our path.
