Encountering Jesus Personally
He Dispels Your Darkness

Episode 2 | January 8, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for Episode 2 in our seven-week series, Encountering Jesus Personally. In this week's episode, Lisa and Laura dive into the Gospel of John, focusing on the famous I AM statement, “I am the light of the world.” Each time we find Jesus saying, “I am,” He is giving us a glimpse into what He’s like. He’s revealing something about His character. If you find yourself reaching for temporary things to fulfill you or wrestling with personal darkness and can’t find your way out, this episode is for you. Grab a cup of coffee and join Lisa and Laura as they unpack today’s Scripture and apply it to our daily lives.

Open your Heart to our key Scripture. 
John 8:12: I am the light of the world.

Open your Bible to other Scriptures referenced in this episode. 
John 8:20: These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.
Leviticus 23:42–43: You shall dwell in booths for seven days; all that are native in Israel shall dwell in booths, that your generations may know that I made the sons of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt.
John 8:12: I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
Job 1:20–22: Then Job arose, and tore his robe, and shaved his head, and fell upon the ground, and worshiped. And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return; the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
Luke 12:34: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Invite Him in with this episode’s questions for reflection.
What temporary things are you thinking are going to give you permanent light? 

If you stopped looking to those things in your longing for beauty and enlightenment and would instead turn to the Light of the World, might you be satisfied in a deeper way?
