Jesus is the Light of the World       

John 1:4-5             

The WORD gave life to everything that was created,  
and His life brought Light to everyone.
The Light shines in the darkness,  
and the darkness can never extinguish it. 

John 1:14

So the WORD became human and made his home among us.
He was full of unfailing LOVE and faithfulness.
And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. Amen

The Great Commission

Matthew 28:16-20
English Standard Version (ESV)

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted.18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
