Icebreaker

What do you still have to do before Christmas?

How do you feel about Christmas lights?

John 1:5

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

Light Dispels the Darkness

Why does fear set in, in the dark?

What does it mean to you today that Jesus is the light of the world?

How does it make you feel that light wins every time?

Light Transforms Your World

Do you worry about the sun coming up tomorrow? 

Does your life feel light or dark right now?

John 12:46

I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.

John 8:3

As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.

John 8:6-7

They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”

John 8:9-11

When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

Why is Jesus’ interaction with the woman and the religious leaders so powerful?

Light Guides Your Path

Go around the group and share some different ways you trust God.

What is the most used app on your phone?

Psalms 119:105

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

How can we make God’s Word our lamp and our light?

John 8:12

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

Why do we choose to walk in the darkness instead of light?

As you close pray for each other to stay in God’s Word and close to Jesus so you can have His lamp and light for our path.
